CSF in the Schools: Shakespeare & Violence Prevention Tour

Loading

Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s touring program uses live performance and the latest school violence research – students improve their Shakespeare literacy AND learn intervention strategies they can use effectively when they see mistreatment happening around them.

How does it work? Professional actors from CSF perform an abridged Shakespeare play onsite at your school (no field trips required), followed by classroom workshops that help students connect situations in the play to situations they face every day. Students can step into the shoes of characters from the play and roleplay creative solutions.

Over 85,000 Colorado students have experienced this innovative program – shouldn’t yours be next?

Julius Caesar (grades 6-12)

Thru April 2018
45 minutes
Caesar's power is growing, and it's making his peers nervous. A group of conspirators plot his demise, and his friend Brutus is placed at a crossroads. What happens when your friends are up to no good? How do you develop the courage to speak up when something isn't right? This classic play speaks volumes about how to intervene in a planned violent attack.

Thru April 2018
30 minutes
Two sets of identical twins are caught up in a whirlwind of mayhem and mistaken identity as they try to untangle a doozy of a confusing day.
