Meet the Company

Founded in 2012 by Emily Gallagher, Courtney Moors, and Rob Sniffin,  Barefoot Shakespeare Company has a pedestrian, engaging and modern outlook on the works of the Bard.


Barefoot Shakespeare Company is dedicated to bringing Shakespeare’s work to a wide, diverse audience. We approach these texts with energy, enthusiasm, and excitement. Striving to create work that is grounded, accessible and applicable, we seek to dissolve the divide between spectator and performer. We believe in collaboration in the arts. We explore the canon and produce both full scale as well as shortened, “ready to go” productions. We also lead in-school workshops that focus on text analysis and a hands-on approach to understanding and enjoying Shakespeare’s words.
