"Therefore, my lord, go travel for a while."
—Pericles

Our Shakespeare-in-the-Schools tour travels to area schools and other venues every year from January to April.


The Utah Shakespeare Festival is once again hitting the road with its Shakespeare-in-the-Schools touring production—this year performing the magical and enchanting story of A Midsummer Night's Dream. From January to April, the Festival will take its production of A Midsummer Night's Dream to more than 25,000 students in five western states. The tour will spend 14 weeks on the road visiting schools, community centers, and correctional facilities in Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, Colorado and Arizona with over 65 performances for more than 120 schools. Also included is a fifteen-minute post-show discussion with the actors and optional workshops in Stage Combat, Performing Shakespeare's Text, and Developing Character through Improvisation.

The cost of the full program is $1,000, plus additional fees for workshops. Limited grants are available.
