"Therefore, my lord, go travel for a while."
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 The Tempest. From January to April, the Festival will take its production of The Tempest to more than 25,000 students in six western states. The tour will spend fourteen weeks on the road visiting schools, community centers, and correctional facilities in Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, and Arizona with over sixty-seven 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.
