Part of our organizations mandate is to educate and inspire audiences in Calgary, regardless of circumstance. Established by Ayla Stephen, The Shakespeare Company’s Outreach program has brought short, accessible Shakespeare productions to Calgary Junior and High Schools since 2011. Our shows improve students understanding of Shakespeare text and bring classical theatre directly to them at school. Since our first show, more than 20,000 Alberta students have experienced our dynamic performances.
Length of Performance: Each performance runs approximately 65 minutes and includes a 5-10 minute question and answer period after the show.
Performance Fees: Cost per performance is $600.00 (+GST). Additional same day performances may be added at a discounted rate. Please contact us if the performance fee is prohibitive for your school/organization and we will be happy to discuss other available options.
Audience Size: There is a maximum audience size of 300 people per performance.
