Education Programs in and after school lead thousands of elementary, middle and high school students into their hearts, onto the stage, and into the spotlight.
Our programs are designed to engage and excite students of all ages. We work in partnership with public school teachers to deliver powerful relevant curriculum. We serve low-income families and system-impacted youth, with a philosophy that every child should be able to participate regardless of the ability to pay.
Education Program Policies:
Class space is limited. Your enrollment is confirmed upon receipt of tuition.
Scholarships are available based on financial need; our goal is to include all students regardless of ability to pay. To apply for a scholarship, please send us a copy of your most recently completed federal income tax return.
INJURY AND ILLNESS POLICY
Marin Shakespeare Company (MSC) shall endeavor to create a safe and healthy environment for all students.
All students enrolled in any MSC program or class are responsible for their own actions, and for their own health and safety. MSC shall not be liable or responsible to the Student or any other person for any damages or injuries whatsoever suffered by the Student in connection with any class work or other activities performed; furthermore, any damages caused by the Student shall be the sole responsibility of the Student and the Student shall expressly indemnify and hold harmless and defend MSC from and against any and all resulting claims, actions or damages of whatever nature.

We understand that your schedule may change. If for any reason you decide to withdraw from a camp or class up to two weeks prior to the first day of instruction, Marin Shakespeare will refund your tuition minus a $100 non-refundable processing fee. There is no fee to switch to a different same-price camp or class within the same calendar year. We reserve the right to cancel any class that does not meet its minimum enrollment; in the event that Marin Shakespeare cancels a session, your entire tuition will be refunded.
MSC may use images of the student in any and all publicity materials including brochures, flyers, and web site.
Shakespeare is For Everyone
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to benefit from studying and participating in Shakespeare and Theatre. We offer free and low-cost programs in public schools serving large numbers of low-income families; and to youth from Marin City and the Canal neighborhood. Our Drama Therapy-inspired programs provide opportunities for highly at-risk youth in and out of carceral institutions to build self-confidence and hope. We are happy to discuss further opportunities to bring Shakespeare and Theatre to those who would not otherwise have the opportunity.
Scholarships are available for all Marin Shakespeare Company classes; our goal is to include all students regardless of the ability to pay. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Shakespeare presents the human condition in all its infinite variety – the beauty, terror, comedy, and passion of the human spirit. His rich language, complex characters and compelling stories help us develop our critical sensitivity and emotional intelligence. It’s a lifelong journey, as our students from 5 to 75 can attest. And our professional teaching artists make Shakespeare passionately, exuberantly fun.
Marin Shakespeare Company brings Shakespeare off the page and onto the stage for thousands of students of all ages throughout the North Bay each year. We design workshops and residencies for classrooms in both public and private schools through our Will Power and Play Power programs. Our year-round classes for youth, teenagers, and adults help students delve deeper into Shakespeare’s world while providing instruction in a variety of performing arts skills. We offer free Shakespeare for Student Audiences, and the Teen Touring Company provides free Shakespeare performances at schools and community centers each winter. Training Programs are opportunities to learn about Shakespeare for Social Justice, Technical Theatre, and Acting. Many programs are offered for free or low-cost to under-served students, families, and schools.
