Educational Outreach

The Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival is committed to offering Shakespeare in performance to regional schools. This year, the festival again offers two different production options. Our Mainstage production, Much Ado About Nothing will be performed for three special midweek matinees at a reduced group rate that includes lunch and the opportunity to interact with cast and crew members. Additionally, our touring production Bard to Go is available to travel to area schools to perform the exciting 50 minute production Puzzle the Will .
