Praise for The Tempest
“The performance was spectacular and the students had so many great things to say the next day! What a wonderful experience for them and for us. Furthermore, the students had so many questions! We figured that they would watch and then quickly rush out, but they had so many great things to ask. What a testament to the effectiveness of your cast!”
- Jolene Grgas Segal, Roslyn High School
HSF’s Theater-for-Young-Audiences program brings live professional productions of Shakespeare’s plays to schools and theaters. This is Shakespeare as you’ve never seen him before! Specially designed for student audiences, these exciting one-hour productions are highly portable, and feature small casts of versatile and talented actors. Since 2006, we have performed for thousands of students from Montauk to Manhattan.
For school performances, we offer optional workshops in individual classrooms on a variety of topics from Shakespeare’s language to movement, improvisation, and performance techniques. These can be tailored to the needs of the classroom and feature a cast member from the production. We can also combine school performances with our more in-depth Shake It Up! artist residencies.
We know you’ll agree, there’s no better way to bring Shakespeare to life than through professional performance. We hope you’ll consider bringing the magic of our productions to your school or theater. If you are interested, please contact us.
