SHAKESPEARE ON THE GO!
Shakespeare on the Go! encompasses four programs that are interactive, lively, and will resonate with today’s youth. These vital programs offer outstanding educational entertainment and instruction for virtually all grades. Whether students are just starting to learn about Shakespeare or working on their own Shakespearean productions, you’ll find a program that accommodates your needs.
We offer several camp sessions each summer and serve students in grades 2 – 6 and 7 – 12. Students learn the basics of acting, text analysis, scene study, and vocal work, with a focus on Shakespeare‘s plays, life, and times. Students then have the opportunity to portray characters from Shakespeare’s plays in scenes while learning more about Shakespeare as they prepare for their final scene performance. Our camps are suitable for all levels and experience.
Student Matinees are available at a discounted rate exclusively to school groups during our performance season. To reserve your group, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Educator training provides tools to teachers to help students decode Shakespeare and develop an appreciation and connection to his works in the modern classroom.
