Why Shakespeare?

William Shakespeare is often called “the greatest playwright in the English language.”  His plays have universal appeal and thus have remained popular and relevant for over 400 years.  Shakespeare addresses many issues that are important to today’s youth including peer pressure, first love, ambition, relationships, and integrity.

Seeing, studying, and performing the works of Shakespeare offers a rare opportunity to develop literary and public speaking skills, explore history and the human condition, and understand how the arts influence and reflect our daily lives.
