In support of Tulane University’s commitment to work directly with the people of New Orleans, Shakespeare on the Road is available, free of charge, to middle and high schools in the Greater New Orleans area. A team of Tulane performance students and one faculty member will visit your school and perform this dynamic program.

This live performance contains excerpts and scenes from many of Shakespeare’s plays as well as stage combat, action and humor. Students gain literary and historical perspective and an understanding of and appreciation for the power of language.

The Shakespeare on the Road performance is one hour in length including a short talk-back with the cast members after the show. The show can be done for large or small audiences, depending on space. A 15’x15′ flat performance space is needed with enough room for the students to sit on three sides. A traditional stage is not necessary.

This program is only available in the Greater New Orleans area due to scheduling and travel restraints.

All performances for the fall of 2014 are booked. Spring 2015 options will be posted here in soon. Please contact Chaney Tullos in the meantime with any questions: ctullos@tulane.edu or (504) 314-7788.
