A leader in arts education and one of the leading Shakespaere theatres in the nation, The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is pleased to announce the launch of our newest artist training initiative - The Young Shakespeareans. This performance-based program brings together a select group of young actors (ages 14-18) to work under the guidance of one of our Main Stage directors and professional staff to present a compelling Shakespeare production.

This demanding, challenging, and rewarding program encourages participants to push their work to the next level. With a focus on the rich language of Shakespeare and the necessity for epic and honest performances, the program sets high expectations for participants. Classic theatre demands the highest levels of discipline, imagination, and rigor from actors. The skills fostered through Shakespeare training infuse themselves into all areas of an actor's work, from contemporary plays to film, from new works to musicals.

Limited enrollment allows for more individual attention for each of those involved.
