Time: 10:00 AM-3:00 PM

Location: Blackfriars Playhouse, Staunton, VA

Join us for our Much Ado about Nothing Homeschool Day on Wednesday, March 25.

Feel the joy of love won and the ache of love lost as this classic comedy makes you laugh, breaks your heart, and then somehow puts it back together again. Then, in our Making the Masquerade workshop, students will follow clues embedded in Shakespeare’s snappy dialogue to stage their own version of the famous masquerade scene in Much Ado.

Location: Blackfriars Playhouse, Staunton, VA

Join us for our Midsummer Night’s Dream Homeschool Day on Thursday, May 14.

Enter a world of lovers and fairies in our 90-minute adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. With a mischievous Puck and the course of true love running anything but smoothly, this is a hilarious comedy with lots of heart. In our paired 90-minute workshop, join Bottom and the rest of the rude mechanicals in an exploration of the clues in Shakespeare’s text that help an actor bring characters to life!
