High School Shakespeare Immersion Project

Every fall, up to thirty carefully selected high school students from Mid-Michigan schools will be invited to spend an entire week immersed in Shakespeare with the extraordinary actor/teaching artists from the Cinncinati Shakespeare Company.

Dates and times

  • Monday, November 9, 2020, to Saturday, November 14, 2020.

  • Monday to Friday meeting times are 4pm to 6pm

  • Saturday will be from 2pm to 4pm – Families and guests will be invited to this session.

  • All events will be virtual 

This is a rare and unique opportunity for selected students to gain tremendous insight into Shakespeare by working on the plays themselves with members of the best classical theatre company in the Midwest. The project has been an enormous success, from the viewpoint of the Institute, student, teacher, and staff.

Student Selection

Students should be carefully screened for their willingness to participate and their ability to keep up with their school work. Previous acting experience is not necessary. We are looking for a variety of students from a variety of schools. To be considered, both a parent/teacher recommendation form and a student application must be submitted by Thursday, November 5, 2020. Finally, be sure your school principal and administrator support student participation in this program.

The Shakespeare Immersion program is generously supported by Carol and Ron Horowitz.
