AT YOUR SCHOOL - Since its inception, Shakespeare LIVE! has performed for nearly half a million students, bringing its innovative, visually stunning and accessible productions of Shakespeare’s classics to schools throughout New Jersey, New York and beyond. LIVE! prides itself on keeping Shakespeare's language intact in every 70-minute production. These professionally-acted, directed and designed productions are dynamic and appealing, exciting and engaging, witty and imaginative—giving students of all ages the opportunity to experience Shakespeare's works as the playwright intended—in performance.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM is not only a perfect introduction to the Bard, but also a hilarious and fun-filled ride for those already familiar with his works. Also scheduled for this season is Shakespeare’s gripping tale of corruption, greed and vaulting ambition, MACBETH. Performances are available at your school from February through early June, 2012.

A video trailer of the 2011 production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, which we are bringing back by popular demand, can be viewed here. A trailer for MACBETH will be coming soon!
