Welcome Schools and Teachers Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival 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, The Tempest 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 new 50 minute production titled Bard To Go: The Wonder of Will: This Is Your Afterlife!
The Tempest matinees will be Monday, October 2, Tuesday, October 3, and Thursday, October 5, at 10AM.
Bard to Go will be touring on Fridays October 6, 20, 27, and November 3.(NOTE, OCTOBER 6 RATHER THAN OCTOBER 13, WHICH HAD BEEN POSTED. BARD WILL BE IN THE BAHAMAS PERFORMING AT SHAKESPEARE IN PARADISE DURING OCTOBER 13)
