2018-19 Tour: "Macbeth" and "Twelfth Night"

September 2018 - April 2019

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 to prevent violence and 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 safe, creative solutions.

Over 92,000 Colorado students have experienced this innovative program – shouldn’t yours be next?
