with Shakespeare on the Sound
Shakespeare on the Sound’s educational programs teach Shakespeare in a manner which dispels the fear and mysticism associated with Shakespeare; we nurture a comfort with, and ownership of, his language. We believe Shakespeare is for everyone regardless of age, race, gender, and socio-economic background. Our programs illuminate Shakespeare’s relevance in our lives today.
