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 will present Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona. 10:00 am performances will be held on January 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19 and 20. 

There will also be one public performance on Friday January 13 at 7:30p. Tickets for that showing go on sale in the fall.

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