CSF is coordinating with state, district, and school partners to adapt the Shakespeare & Violence Prevention program to a virtual format for the 2020-21 school year. Details coming soon.

Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s touring program uses professional actors 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 (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 112,000 Colorado students have experienced this innovative program – shouldn’t yours be next?
