2018 Winter/Spring Touring Productions


Shakespeare's searing tale of love, deception and jealousy.

A Midsummer Night's Dream
Shakespeare’s most delightful, magical, outrageous and comical portrayal of love, mischief and duty.

This team of Shakespeare & Company actor/teachers travels throughout the Northeast, visiting colleges, theatres, middle and high schools, conducting workshops and performing a 90-minute production of one of Shakespeare’s plays. This fully produced “Bare Bard” style of performance emphasizes Shakespeare’s language, dramatic action, and the vital relationship between the Actors and the Audience.

A one-day package at your university, school or venue includes:

  • a 90-minute performance of the selected play (MND or Othello)
  • a15-minute interactive post-show Forum that engages the audience's own insights and observations.
  • the choice of one 45-minute workshop with your students:
    • The Workshop in Performance (up to 50 students performing short Shakespeare scenes)
    • The Actor-Audience Workshop (unlimited size, the audience re-directs segments of the play)
