The 30th Fall Festival of Shakespeare

November 15-18, 2018

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
