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 2016 the Festival will present Shakespeare’s Cymbeline.

10:00a student matinees will be held on January 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21 & 22 in Tulane’s Dixon Hall.

Runtime is approximately two hours with no intermission. An optional talkback with the cast follows each show.
