Introduce Shakespeare to your students with our free “Shakespeare in Schools” Program!

Spokane Civic Theatre Shakespeare in Schools Program

The “Shakespeare in Schools” program is a unique, interactive course that is designed to introduce Shakespeare to your students in an entertaining, informative, and fun way… at absolutely no cost to you!

We travel to your school and work in your classroom with a combination of up-on-your-feet activities and theatrical performances, augmented by comprehensive study guides. Our innovative program will not only teach your students critical language arts skills, but will also heighten their appreciation for literature and have them acting Shakespeare comfortably within the first 10 minutes of class! "Shakespeare in Schools” is an 80 minute program that can be done in one day or broken down into two, 40 minute sections.

This course is available to all middle and high school students and teachers. For a more detailed summary of the program, click here
