At Our Theater

See a fully-staged 90-minute performance, and then participate in the post-performance workshop with the creative team! Productions are specifically crafted with young audiences in mind, breaking the expectation of “boring” Shakespeare with innovative (and often interactive) staging, and design that aims to please the teenage aesthetic.

Productions are best suited for grades 6-12. Post-performance workshops include a Q&A with the cast, a behind-the-scenes look at the production, and an interactive Shakespearean battle of wits (always a crowd pleaser)! While our post-show workshop is most effective when paired with workshops at your school, it can also be booked on its own.


Reservations are made on a first-come first-served basis. Due to the size of the theater, we cannot guarantee accommodation for groups over 100 people. Scholarship funding is available; please complete the optional scholarship application.
