Artist / Program Description

Since 1996, First Folio Shakespeare’s touring shows have been showing students just how much fun Shakespeare can be. Their mainstage productions have earned them numerous recommendations and nominations for Theatrical Excellence by the Joseph Jefferson Committee. By taking the Bard’s words off the page and putting them on the stage, First Folio brings all the romance, comedy, and adventure of Shakespeare’s works to life. Offering numerous programs, First Folio has something for every age and educational level from grade school through college, as well as programs for the general public. As the Chicago Sun-Times says, First Folio “is the way Shakespeare ought to be.”
