Shakespeare Players

For Grades 3-5

Young people become confident with Shakespeare’s world, language and characters as they learn how to interpret a role with technique and courage. Classically trained professional actors assist the players in their physical, vocal and emotional transformations.

All Shakespeare Players teaching artists are classically trained professional actors and have performed Shakespeare both on and off Broadway and in regional theaters across the country.

In addition to core teaching staff, in Shakespeare Ensemble we introduce a roster of exciting guest teachers who will use their specific expertise (Text, Comedia dell Arte, Stage Combat) to enrich our rehearsals.

“Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.”

When a coven of witches counsel Macbeth, he sets off on a destructive and tragic quest for power. Along the way, queens go mad, kings become ghosts, forests move and daggers float. A thrilling exploration of ambition, fate and magic.

Class meets once a week for 14 weeks.

“My daughter has participated in three Shakespeare Players classes so far, and we couldn't be happier with the program. The Child's Play team is incredibly supportive and encourages a fun, supportive atmosphere, while also having high expectations for what the kids can accomplish. She looks forward to going every week.”
