Shakespeare And Co Actors Kissing Berskshires Ma

The 29th Fall Festival of Shakespeare

November 16-19, 2017

The annual Fall Festival of Shakespeare is a residency program at 10 high schools in Massachusetts and neighboring New York. Shakespeare & Company directing teams lead students at each school through a language-based exploration of different Shakespeare plays, culminating in full-scale productions at their own schools and then on the main stage at our own Tina Packer Playhouse. When high-energy teenagers are turned loose - through the power of Shakespeare’s language - the thrill is contagious. And the houses are packed.

“This is a rock concert of Shakespeare! Show after show after show the theater is jammed with kids and adults cheering for the performers and the productions.” –WBUR Radio, Boston

Festival Pass (all 10 shows) - Adults $80/Students $35
Single Tickets - Adults $16/Students $10.

*A $4 service fee is added for phone and online sales.
