The scripts will be available soon right here on our Youth Theatre Workshop webpage, so, feel free to read it before our first day. We will read through the play on day one on our feet as a group, and the players will have a chance to note their role preferences. The roles will be cast that evening, and rehearsals will begin on day two!

THERE ARE PARTS FOR EVERYONE! “Shakespeared!” is tailored to provide young players with an opportunity to engage with Shakespeare’s text in a fun way and to see the potential interpretations that lie within the text. 

Please feel free to contact Caroline Good ([email protected]) with ANY questions regarding the workshop!

As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”
