Shakespeare festivals have much to offer the community in addition to the pleasures of outdoor summer theater. We are pleased to partner with local organizations, schools and libraries to share our love of Shakespeare’s words and works, creating educational and inspirational opportunities within our community for a variety of audiences and ages.

(Youth Engage Shakespeare) WSF’s one and only summer youth theatre workshop. Each summer, for 3 1/2 weeks, teens work on a production that includes scenes from one of the Festival plays and their own original devised work. The workshop culminates with a performance for friends, families, and the WSF audience on the Festival Stage.

For more information, visit the YES! Project.



What can WSF do for you? A Day with WSF is a workshop you request from us, geared to your organizational or instructional needs. Workshops might focus on Shakespearean verse and language, acting style, a particular play or genre, Renaissance dance, and stage combat. Contracts are negotiated group by group.
