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.
Since Performance For The Schools began over twenty years ago, we have received nine National Endowment For The Arts Grants and have had multiple sponsors underwrite tickets to this event, providing affordable tickets for many students in the Gulf South region.
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 $12 per student, and one free chaperone ticket is provided for every fifteen students. Additional chaperones pay only $12.
To reserve seats, please email Nancy Gunn at or call (504) 314-7752 if you have any questions.
Our next Performance For The Schools will be Henry IV, Part 1 in January 2023.
