Every fall, thousands of students are introduced to Shakespeare when we tour Shakespeare's work into classrooms and communities throughout Nebraska and the region.
In 2019, we performed 39 shows and facilitated over 90 educational activities in 17 counties.
Although we are unable to offer a live performance in 2020, we offered a Nebraska Shakespeare professional, abridged video production of Macbeth specifically staged for students and educators followed by a live Zoom post-performance discussion with skilled actor/educators creating a customized experience for students and their teachers.
We are excited to offer Romeo and Juliet for the 2021 season.
Romeo and Juliet On Tour
This coming fall, we are excited to announce that we will once again provide live theatre and educational workshops to the schools and rural communities throughout Nebraska. To celebrate a return to normalcy, we are currently adapting a shortened version of Romeo and Juliet that combines Shakespeare’s words with a modern interpretation featuring a hip-hop style of delivery and a multi-ethnic cast of actor/educators.
We invite you to join us for this unique and exciting theatrical experience.
Tour dates will begin on September 20th and continue through October. To request more information on the tour and how to reserve a date, please contact Lara Marsh, Director of Productions by clicking here.
