Midsummer in Wimberley is time for that magic combination of stars, Shakespeare, and enthusiastic young actors.

The EmilyAnn Theatre is the only high school accredited Shakespearean theatre in the United States. The six-week program which makes up Shakespeare Under the Stars includes two complete plays, culminating in performances on alternating evenings the last week in July and the first week in August.

Shakespeare Under the Stars provides an opportunity for participants to learn all aspects of theatre, including set, costume, and lighting design. What makes this program so unusual is that all acting roles are filled by children no older than their graduated Senior summer. The program begins at the end of June and ends with the last performance in August.
