We believe that practical experience with the plays of William Shakespeare and the art of dramatic storytelling are critical components of any education. This is no less so during this extraordinary time for our schools and our society.
This spring, Red Bull Theater is continuing its Shakespeare in Schools initiative with an online interactive initiative centered on Shakespeare’s ROMEO AND JULIET. Central to this program is a 55-minute LIVE online presentation of Shakespeare’s play performed during school hours by a diverse cast of teaching artists. This viewing experience will be complemented by online interactive residency activities with members of the company. And it’s all being offered for FREE.
This initiative is being designed specifically for students in grades 6-9, but others may also participate. And while we particularly hope to serve a diversity of schools within the five boroughs of New York, possibilities exist regardless of location.
Activities are being planned for April-May.

This program is made possible through the leadership support of Shakespeare in American Communities, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, and The Achelis & Bodman Foundation.
