Utah Shakespeare Festival’s Shakespeare-in-the-Schools Tour
West Valley Arts sponsors the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s educational touring production of Hamlet on March 19, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. at Hillside Elementary.
Join West Valley Arts for Utah Shakespeare Festival’s educational touring production of
Hamlet at Hillside Elementary.
“This above all else…To thine own self be true”
The Utah Shakespeare Festival's touring company of nine professional theatre artists and educators is returning to schools this winter to bring one of the world’s most recognized plays to K-12 students across the Intermountain West!
This production of Hamlet will highlight themes of authenticity and reality under the ever-scrutinizing eye of the media and societal expectations. Hamlet’s ongoing search for truth and his enduring question – To be, or not to be? – offers extraordinary relevance for today’s young people: How do we know what is true, or whom to trust? Upon what sources can we rely? Do we choose to be the person society expects of us – the avenging son, the dutiful daughter, the good student, etc. – or not to be that which is expected, and to instead chart our own path? Maintaining Shakespeare’s text (in a shortened version) invites students of all ages to explore these questions through the eloquence and possibility of heightened language. And there are sword fights!
Shakespeare in the Schools “brings quality Shakespeare performances and workshops to schools and communities throughout the West,” and has been doing so for twenty-nine years.
