Sharing Shakespeare with a new generation

In January of each year the Festival stages a full-length professional production of one of Shakespeare’s plays, performed on Tulane’s campus as a field trip opportunity for middle and high school students. These performances are often the only opportunity students have to see live professional theatre and, more often, their first live Shakespearean performance.

Tickets are only $10 per student, and one free chaperone ticket is provided for each fifteen students. Additional chaperones pay only $10.

In January of 2017 the Festival presented Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona

The 2018 production will be announced in the fall of 2017.
