Shakespeare After-school Programs

In our after-school classes, students explore and experience some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, while building skills in teamwork and self-expression. We investigate Elizabethan insults and compliments and jump into the buffoonery of the comedies and exaggeration of the tragedies. Students develop their understanding of the plays through acting, voice, movement, and text analysis, then apply their newfound skills in a performance of their scene work for family and friends.

We currently offer the following after-school classes in 8-to-12 week sessions:
Storybook Theater (Grades K–2)
Intro to Shakespeare (Grades 3–5)


After-school classes* are only offered at the request of the school.  If your school would like to have Cal Shakes at your location or have any questions, please contact Artistic Learning Programs Manager Beverly Sotelo at 510-809-3293 or bsotelo@calshakes.org.

*All After-school classes are subject to minimum participation requirements. In the event that Cal Shakes must cancel a class due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.

Shakespeare Workshops for Homeschoolers

Designed for young actors with some familiarity with Shakespeare, these fun and challenging classes allow students to delve into some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays. They develop their understanding of the plays through acting, voice, movement, and text analysis, then apply their newfound skills in a performance of their scene work for family and friends.

If you are interested in starting a homeschool group for Fall 2015, please contact us to become a PARENT/GUARDIAN ORGANIZER*.

A minimum of 11 participants per class are required.
