Event Details

 

Help us KEEP THE CLASSICS ALIVE!

Shakespeare wrote his plays to be performed and watched.  Studying the play in English class teaches wonderful lessons on the structure of the language, the poetry and the imagery.  However, only when his plays are performed, does the language comes alive, and those lessons resonate with the students. 

 

Many English instructors teach the play as a romantic story.  However, the true lesson of the play is in the tragedy of the story.  The impetuous behavior of two young people, making choices without considering the consequences might have been pulled from today’s headlines or an entertainment newscast.  The timelessness is what connects with young audiences. 

 

With the continual challenges facing our schools, snowballing budget cuts, growing class-sizes, and diminishing resources for teachers, arts programing in becoming increasingly scares.  The Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival feels a responsibility to offer dynamic theatrical experiences to our students.  For many, our presentations may be their first experiences, perhaps their only experience theatre experience.  As a local organization, we are working with local business, organizations and you in order to offer these professional performances for our students and our community.
