On Tour

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 will offer a Nebraska Shakespeare professional, abridged video production of Macbeth specifically staged for students and educators. The 80-minute production will be followed by a live Zoom post-performance discussion with skilled actor/educators creating a customized experience for students and their teachers.

Educational Offerings


Macbeth Virtual On Tour Performance & Discussion

The 2020 on tour has wrapped up. Stay tuned for details on the 2021 tour. For inquiries contact Lara Marsh, Director of Production, at (402) 280-2333 or through email by clicking here.


Study Guides

New this year – one-page and multi-page study guides. Study guides are filled with activities and discussion prompts that can be used before or after the performance to deepen students' understanding and engagement with the play. Look here in summer 2020 for both Macbeth study guides.
