Shakespeare on Wheels

November and December 2015

The Shakespeare on Wheels team is made up of a director, a choreographer, a designer and a composer. Your students can choose whether to act and dance, create the set and costumes or compose and play the music for a fifteen-minute scene from one of Shakespeare’s plays, which comes together before your eyes over the course of two days (students in Grades 9 and up) or three days (students up to Grade 8).

Shakespeare on Wheels takes place entirely in your school. The students selected to take part are withdrawn from their other subjects during the course of the program. The final performance takes place in your school with an audience of fellow students and proud parents.

The program provides students an opportunity to explore new facets of theatre production and to experience the collaborative process of putting on a play. Students also engage with Shakespeare in the most authentic way possible – in performance!

Shakespeare on Wheels can accommodate eight schools per year. All schools must be within one hour’s drive of Stratford. To sign up your school, call 1.800.561.1233, ext. 2354, or send an email
