This season we are proud to bring back by popular demand, Shakespeare Meets Hip Hop, our interactive touring presentation which parallels the poetry and rhythm of Shakespeare’s works with modern hip hop. Students will discover the parallels between the world of Shakespeare's plays and their own contemporary experience!
We are also excited to present Suddenly Shakespeare, our popular touring production that is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for young audiences!
We also offer mainstage shows, tours, hands- on workshops and residencies tailored to your needs! Students of all ages will fall in love with the characters, the actors and the stories of Shakespeare.
If you are interested in learning more or booking us for your students, please complete an inquiry form or give us a call at (416) 703-4881.
