Shakespeare in the Schools is GableStage’s flagship educational program which brings 8000+ Miami-Dade students abridged, modernized versions of Shakespeare’s most classic plays. Each season we perform, on average, 40 performances at 20 Miami-Dade middle and high schools.
Shakespeare in the Schools has the following objectives:
- To expose high school students to classic text that is animated from the page; Shakespeare is meant to be played rather than read and many young people will never have the opportunity to experience complicated, metaphorical verse, brought to life with depth, vibrancy and meaning.
- To engender a life-long love of Shakespeare by amplifying the overarching themes that exist in Shakespearean plays, such as appearance vs reality; change; order and disorder; and conflict and how these themes are relevant today
- To provide actors and stage managers, who have recently graduated from college, their first professional opportunity. By providing an experienced director, dramaturg and production team and mentorship from GableStage stage managers and staff, early career actors gain confidence and experience in their craft
