Students have the opportunity to develop skills in stage combat, performance aesthetics, dance, technical theater, costuming, stage management, marketing and publicity during the Fall Festival experience.
An annual tradition, the Fall Festival is the culmination of the nationally recognized program that places Shakespeare & Company education artists in 10 local and regional schools where they lead students in a nine-week exploration of Shakespeare’s plays.
“I’ve found that Shakespeare affects teenagers deeply and immediately. It’s totally intoxicating and addictive; once you’ve started working on Shakespeare plays, you never want to stop.”
— Caroline Sprague, an actor and student at Monument Mountain Regional High School
“Common Classes at the Fall Festival of Shakespeare are a beautiful example of what education might one day become — nurturing creativity and developing cooperation.”
— Kevin Coleman, Director of Education at Shakespeare and Company
