Shakespeare to Go is a program started by Shakespeare Santa Cruz in 1988 in collaboration with the UCSC Theater Arts Department. Each year, a Theater Arts faculty member creates a 50-minute adaptation of one of the plays in SSC’s upcoming summer season. This program, which utilizes UCSC students as actors and stage manager, has proven very successful at engaging students of all ages in the works of Shakespeare and the art of live theatre, and can serve as an excellent springboard for additional classroom work in arts or literature.
The 2013 Shakespeare to Go production is Henry V, adapted and directed by Danny Scheie (UCSC Theater Arts professor ). In addition to the performances, workshops are available, and will be taught by artist/educator Gina Marie Hayes.
Educators may book a performance of Shakespeare to Go by contacting SSC Production Administrator Jessica Bond at
(831) 459-5810 or email@example.com.
Shakespeare to Go is available for performances every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning between April 1 and June 3. A single performance is $450 in Santa Cruz County and $500 everywhere else; a double performance (i.e. two shows in one morning) is $650.
In addition to performances by our touring group, you can book workshops for your students.
