Shakesperience educates and inspires students, families, and theatre professionals through the arts in order to explore social constructs and foster mutual respect for all people. Shakesperience creates innovative, interactive, thought-provoking live theatre programs rooted in classical literature by focusing on the dynamic relationship between the artist and the audience.
Whether teaching children, or rehearsing to perform for our diverse audience, the Shakesperience Approach focuses on creating thought provoking, socially aware, and artistically excellent productions celebrating and using language to create action. Individual performers develop a defined sense of self through the creation of and interaction with a strong and positive ensemble. Both actor and audience utilize their unique relationship to experience a heightened sense of reflection on the performance. Shakesperience Productions' professional artists create curriculum-based programming rooted in classical literature while celebrating, examining, and experiencing humanity and human experience. Continuously, we strive to work alongside educators to answer the social and academic needs of today's student.
In June of 2020 Shakesperience formed a group of board, staff, and volunteers to intentionally diversify board, staff, and programming. With some progress made, the work continues. Shakesperience will not use this work for marketing, but rather for deliberate and positive systemic improvement guided by the mission and approach detailed above. The Board of Directors is actively seeking help to create functional policies and procedures for inclusion. Email email@example.com.
