This is a spring Shakespeare festival involving several upper schools in the joint performance of a single play. Each school takes one or two scenes from the play, coached by our teaching artists, and performs them in one festive educational event that includes group workshops, a world-wide live broadcast performance, exercises to enhance their understanding of Shakespeare, and a talk-back with all participants after the performance. The performance is streamed live online in partnership with Dominion Energy Center education program. For several years, the program has included the participation of students from St. Petersburg, Russia.
In-school Workshops and Residencies
Customized to the individual teacher’s needs, we offer a wide variety of in-school services, including single workshops on understanding Shakespeare’s language through the perspective of performance, and residencies that can provide an in-depth training, with an optional final student performance. It is our pleasure to provide unique opportunities for your students to have fun as they learn—and forget how to fear Shakespeare!
