Theatre Prospero

We bring vibrant Shakespeare and other excellent theatre to junior and senior high schools around the province of Alberta through our Artists-In-Residence programmes. The students in the schools we visit get to act in these plays with our professionals. There is funding available from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts to support our visit to your school. We can come for an entire day, several days, or even two weeks. The longer we stay, the more acting your students can do in the play, and the more we can work with them on their character, their movement, voice, and releasing the power of Shakespeare's language in them.

Students who want to be involved but don't want to act can take on a range of technical duties.

Many of the students that we have worked with in the last decade and a half have gone on to make considerable contributions to the arts and arts education. We don't just create art in your school, we help to create artists in the community at large.

Our scripts are faithful to the originals, but edited down to 75 to 120 minute pieces. Children as young as 7 have sat in rapt attention at our productions.

We can also bring to life non-Shakespearean plays such as Euripides' The Bacchae, and Trojan Women, as well as Ted Hughes' The Coming of the Kings.
