LENOX, Mass. – This Giving Tuesday – a global day of philanthropy occurring this year on November 28 – Shakespeare & Company will aim to raise funds in support of its education-centered Northeast Regional Tour of Shakespeare.
An annual tour that sends productions of Shakespeare’s plays along with a variety of related workshops into middle and high schools, colleges, community centers, and other venues, the Northeast Regional Tour of Shakespeare reaches more than 20,000 students, teachers, and audience members each year, and has been part of Shakespeare & Company’s repertoire since 1982.
This year, the Northeast Regional Tour of Shakespeare will present A Midsummer Night’s Dream from February 5 through May 18, 2024. Visits include a 90-minute performance, an interactive, 15-minute post-show forum immediately following the performance, and the choice of one of two, 45-minute workshops with students.
The Company also offers custom packages that include access to virtual programming, multi-day residencies with additional workshops, and more. For more information about the Northeast Regional Tour, visit shakespeare.org/education.
