From ancient grudge break to new mutiny.

Romeo and Juliet

Touring: September 2019 - April 2020
Performance: 45 minutes
Workshops: 50 minutes
Grades: 6+

Star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet strive for connection in a bitterly divided community. Verona's youth are forced to bear the burden of their parents' ancient grudge, an ultimately tragic testimony that "violent delights have violent ends."

Workshops will focus on the relationship between empathy and violence, using roleplay scenarios from the play to practice creative alternatives to violence.

CSF is also touring The Tempest for grades 3-5.

Shakespeare & Violence Prevention

Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s touring program uses live performance and the latest school violence research. Students improve their Shakespeare literacy AND learn safe and effective intervention strategies they can use 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.

Pricing: $650-$1200
Subsidies available for qualified schools.
