Join students from New Mexico School for the Arts, Santa Fe Indian School, Santa Fe High School, Academy for Technology and the Classics, and Upstart Crows of Santa Fe in our inaugural Youth Shakespeare Festival.

This year’s program includes scenes and monologues from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Richard III, and The Tempest.  

Special Guest Artist: Devon Glover: The Sonnet Man

Our Youth Shakespeare Festival trains teens to speak Shakespeare, use a sword,
dance a coranto, swear like an Elizabethan, fight like a villain, and drink from tankards and flagons.

Students will produce short scenes in a festival performance and in the process will develop skills in critical thinking, close reading, literary analysis, public speaking, voice, stage combat, and Shakespearean staging.
