Looking for Shakespeare is an intensive Shakespeare summer program for high school students from around the country. This summer’s program will be unique in that ensemble members will meet virtually, via online video platforms, to work with the director, production team, and NYU coaches to mount a full virtual production at the end of the workshop. 

Looking for Shakespeare is seeking young actors to join the inclusive ensemble of our production. Offering individualized support and a trained staff, the LFS program aims to advance essential skills and spotlight the natural aptitudes of each performer. This exciting new model will provide a rewarding, collaborative experience for participants of all abilities, gender identities, and/or racial, ethnic, or national backgrounds. As part of the program, participants will have access to NYU online student resources and will receive training in Shakespeare analysis, acting for the camera, and virtual theatre production.
