Teen Touring Company A Unique Acting Opportunity

2023: HAMLET by William Shakespeare

Directed by Education Director Elana Kepner

Teen Touring Company Romeo and Juliet, 2019

The Teen Touring Company is a unique opportunity for actors aged 12 – 19
to create and tour a Shakespeare play to schools, senior centers and community
organizations.  Students work with a professional director and dive into conservatory-style rehearsal and training in voice and text work, acting and movement. This year, we are producing Hamlet, Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, with a contemporary spin. All roles are available for performers of any gender.
