About Us

MISSION
Through the engagement with and performance of Shakespeare’s text using a unique artistic methodology, we create matchless and transformative experiences that empower audiences of all ages to expand and challenge their worldview.

Services Offered

Tours: We bring Shakespeare to the schools through a live performance. This experience includes a guided talkback with the actors and a comprehensive study guide that students use in the weeks leading up to the performance.
Residencies: Students study one of nine Shakespeare plays in their classroom. A professional teaching artist from The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre works in collaboration with the classroom teacher to perform scenes from these plays with the students.
