Shakespeare for Kids by Kids: Using the past to pave the way for the future, we are a playground where kids experiment with Shakespeare and the makings of Fun. 

“It’s ‘Our Gang’ meets ‘Shakespeare!’ – Texas Renaissance Festival Judge

 

Ever notice that Shakespeare can be as ‘tedious as a twice-told tale?’ Well, ‘as good luck would have it,’ our 8-13 year olds know how to ‘bedazzle’ you with the bard. Through performances, adaptations, new works and social media, we make learning about Shakespeare exciting and accessible.

Onstage: Each fall and spring, our Company of youth players (8-13 years) offer free performances for the public at various venues around Austin, TX. In addition to our performing company, we offer after school programs and workshops.

Online: Throughout the year, our Shakespeare Lab creates content for our social media platforms.

Girl ImprovEd: Inspired by Shakespeare, girls are learning to write, produce and direct in Girl ImprovEd.

Adaptations: Bring ImprovEd Shakespeare to your school, your club or your home with our adaptations. Coming soon!
