VALLEY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL, the Naugatuck Valley’s only nonprofit outdoor theater company, is thrilled to announce its 2018 tour program, VSF2U.
In addition to its annual full outdoor production in July, VSF will bring its unique brand of classical theater to your organization’s very own venue! Over the past 5 years we have entertained and educated audiences in schools, senior centers, homeless shelters, libraries, restaurants, and yes, even bars! Each of these venues brings with it its own set of challenges, but also wondrous varieties of opportunity.
2018’s tour offering will be Shakespeare’s classic tale of ambition-gone-bad, Macbeth. No matter what your organization’s mission is, be it education (VSF’s Education Initiative program is designed in compliance with CT State’s common core directives to include lessons in literacy, historical perspective and social integration), team-building (a new “must” in today’s corporate world), or just plain entertainment (you can’t beat the classics!), Valley Shakespeare Festival’s tour program has you covered.
The Education Initiative program is designed specifically with schools in mind. It includes a 30 minute in-classroom workshop led by our professional teaching artists prior to a full adapted performance of the play (which lasts approximately 90 minutes) and concludes with a 10-15 minute Q&A. The classroom workshop prepares the students for the performance and concentrates on helping them to understand the language, the historical and social perspective of the time, and to interpret its lessons and apply to them to contemporary issues.
Some or all of the above components of the tour program can be adapted to your organization’s needs, choosing as many or as few of the program’s three components as you require. The cost can be adjusted accordingly.
Capacity is limited to 150 audience members per performance as the program is an interactive environment.
VSF2U’s MACBETH will run from late April through mid-May, 2018. The program is one of the least costly of its kind and books up quickly, so we encourage all interested organizations to contact us as soon as possible to save your date.

VSF2U brings the classics to your door in a relaxed, inclusive, accessible atmosphere designed to educate, enlighten and entertain!
