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 2018 play will be The Two Noble Kinsmen.

This program will run for three and a half weeks: June 27th through July 21st. 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 7th and July 14th. Lunch is provided every program day. The experience culminates in three public performances on July 19th - 21st. There is a materials fee that covers the cost of lunches, a performance DVD, and a t-shirt. There are merit-based and need-based scholarships available.
