A LIVE performance of Shakespeare brought directly into our schools for every 9th grader in our valley

Shakespeare was meant to be performed and watched where the language  is understood, see the characters come to life, and the tragedy of impetuous  behavior has greater meaning.   

You can help us reach every ninth grade student in our valley. This 40-minute selection of scenes is crafted specifically for high schools, and includes many of the most famous scenes and characters from the play while maintaining the integrity of Shakespeare’s language. The presentation accommodates an interactive talk-back after each performance.  Scenes include:  the dance, the balcony scene, Romeo’s departure,  the fight between Mercutio and Tybalt, and the tomb scene.

Become a sponsor and have your name & company logo on every program, study guide, and all PR & marketing for this tour, reaching an audience of over 3,500, students, staff & faculty.

For more information about becoming a sponsor for the Romeo & Juliet Tour, contact davidstears@scshakespearefest.org.
