About the Program

Patterned after a similar program at London’s Globe Theatre, Metro Youth Shakespeare brings together teens from diverse backgrounds and has area high school students discovering a new passion for Shakespeare through the semester-long program.

Festival Teaching Artists lead students through an in-depth study and rehearsal process of a Shakespeare play. Dividing one play into equal portions, each school spends a full semester developing its assigned scene. With emphasis on team building, collaboration, and process, Metro Youth Shakespeare culminates with public performances that brings together all the participating schools to celebrate the community-wide collaboration.
