Looking for Shakespeare

Summer Programs

Looking for Shakespeare

An intensive Shakespeare summer program for high school students from around the country. This program is unique in that ensemble members work with a director, production team, and graduate assistants to mount a fully-produced Shakespeare play on the campus of NYU. Participants investigate how Shakespeare’s language resonates for them, within their own personal experiences. The 2017 production will be The Tempest.

This program will run for three and a half weeks: June 29th through July 22nd. A detailed schedule will be provided to participants in June. The program primarily runs Monday through Friday from 9:00am-3:00pm, but there are two Saturday rehearsals: July 8th and July 15th. Lunch is provided every program day. The experience culminates in three public performances on July 20th - 22nd. There is a materials fee that covers the cost of lunches, a performance DVD, and a t-shirt. There are merit-based and/or need-based scholarships available.
