Shakespeare in the Schools

The Shakespeare in the Schools Touring Program

Every Spring a dedicated cast of Butte College student actors bring classic drama to local schools. Our mission is to present classic dramatic literature to Butte County’s youth. The given play is adapted to 45 minutes and rehearsed for 10 weeks—from the beginning of February through the first week in April. When the show is ready we load up the sets and costumes, caravan the actors, and tour! The door-to-door time for each outing is about three hours, give or take. This includes the rendezvous, company roll call, caravan to our destination, set up, performance, Q&A, strike, and the trip home. This project is extremely rewarding because many of our K-8 audience have never seen a live dramatic performance! We have the singular joy of introducing theatre to hundreds of kids!
