Education | Alabama Shakespeare Festival


Research has shown that arts education encourages high achievement, builds creative problem solving and analytical skills, refines judgment, and stimulates “thinking outside the box.” Students exposed to theatre are often more confident and creative and develop a life-long appreciation of language.

Come! Enjoy! Learn!


Students and teachers from throughout the South meet Shakespeare and many other playwrights by attending SchoolFest: weekday student matinees. Click here to learn more. 

Summer Camps

Alabama Shakespeare Festival’s summer camps foster an appreciation for the words of Shakespeare and the artistry of musical theatre. During camp, students will build skills they’ll take into the future. Camp Shakespeare explores theatre through play, stage combat, storytelling, and design. Broadway South creates triple threats through lessons in voice, dance, and song interpretation. Learn more.
