"Shakespeare & Friends is a cultural program that aims to encourage reading in children from an early age, so they can assess, use and recognize the importance of their language."
We present classic plays adapted for school-age children. Shakespeare & Friends performs plays at schools with a cast of professional actors, providing a spectacle full of adventure and fun that allows children to experience first hand the joy and wonder of the spoken word.
STEAM Connection: The plays adapted Shakespeare & Friends will produce are an ideal component of STEAM education. With our first play, "The Tempest", early elementary students will explore weather and the power of wind. Older elementary students will collaborate on solutions to move a group of stranded people from an island that is hundreds of miles from the mainland using math and science, instead of magic.
Shakespeare and his friends will arrive through our theater company to the public and private schools of the State of Florida, aiming to reach more than 100,000 children in the next years.
