The Bay Colony Shakespeare Company’s Educational Touring Program is dedicated to bringing professional, meaningful 90-minute performances to schools in order to make Shakespeare and other classical works accessible to students. Students and actors participate in a talk-back after the performance, with additional workshops available.
This was an extraordinarily professional, first-rate, Shakespearean performance by a group of talented actors… Our students were entranced! Our teachers impressed! The Bay Colony Shakespeare Company brought the performance of Hamlet to us and worked around our schedule and logistical issues to make it work. Outstanding!
Bay Colony Shakespeare’s first trip to Barnstable High School will not be its last. The company of actors and crew was enthusiastic, skilled, and especially aware of the challenges a high school audience might present. Our audience was engaged from the first moments of Hamlet and never lost interest. This was a Hamlet that was as intriguing as any large-scale, full-length production could be.
Great discussion after the show, and even better ones in our classroom the day after!
Thank you so much for bringing your actors in and putting on a beautiful show… theatrical genius. I loved sitting front row; the sweat glittering on Hamlet’s brow was as bright as your rendition. I thoroughly enjoyed your actors and ideas. There was never a dull moment…
Currently we have MacBeth,Twelfth Night and Hamlet preparing for the 2016-2017 school year, with Workshops for both Faculty and Students offered as add-ons to our 90 minute performances and talk backs. Booking now!
