School Matinees

29apr-rj-47-WEB

“You were more than willing to accept our group of children with unique abilities, mostly with Autism, and not only accommodated us, but made sure that we were well prepared….. the production held each of our students captive, they were not only engaged but they were ABSORBED into the production. Chesapeake Shakespeare Company absolutely floored us.”
-Crystal S., Teacher, Arrow School, Towson, MD

Bring your students to our beautiful downtown space, and let them experience live theatre, performed by professional, local artists.  Let them hear the sumptuous and witty language, listen to our musical selections before and during the show, watch thrilling swordfights, and share in an intimate and powerful production of some of the greatest plays ever written. Every performance is followed by an optional talk back with the actors, where students deepen their understanding of Shakespeare, and find out about the making of the play, performing arts careers, and how Chesapeake Shakespeare Company connects with its audience.

“Great performance, and the girls raved about. Many of them said it was their favorite field trip of the year.”
-Sarah F., 7th grade English Teacher, Bryn Mawr School
