A Little Shakespeare
Each season, Two River Theater produces a 75-minute adaptation of a Shakespeare play - directed and designed by theater professionals and performed by high school students. The program is fully immersive: in addition to students performing in the play, students also shadow the artistic and technical artists, including the director, costume designer, stage manager, and others. The fifth year of this program featured a cast and crew of 23 students from 12 different high schools in The Comedy of Errors, adapted and directed by Sara Holdren, which ran for 6 performances and attracted an audience of 1,000 patrons.
