The Texas Shakespeare Festival Roadshow is a traveling set of performances and workshops that come to your school or community. Each performance comes with an in-depth study guide about the play as well as a four-week lesson plan and exercise booklet to implement leading up to the performance. The 2021 productions are Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing.


Immerse yourself in the life of a professional actor as you live and train amongst the Texas Shakespeare Festival Company. This 8 day workshop is designed for the student who is serious about taking their work to the next level and seeing what life as a professional actor is really like.  Cost includes show tickets, housing, and all meals. The workshop culminates in a showcase performance free to your family and friends. 


Escape into the world of theatre for a six-week class taking you behind the scenes of the Texas Shakespeare Festival's 2021 season. This course will introduce the craft of theatre to patrons who are curious about the inner workings of the art form, and allow you to have a deeply enriching experience as you take in the summer productions. 




Want to introduce your students to the process a professional actor takes when working on Shakespeare?  Bring staff members from the Texas Shakespeare Festival into your school for a workshop that gets students on their feet and using their bodies, voices, and minds to bring Shakespeare to life.  Workshop lengths vary from 1 to 3 hours, but full day or multi-day workshops can be designed upon request. TSF will design workshops tailored to your particular needs.



Go behind the scenes with the Texas Shakespeare Festival and engage in a variety of hands-on exercises, discussions, Q&A Panels, and demonstrations to create a well-rounded approach to teaching the fine arts. Earn 30 CPE hours, see four professional productions, work with professional artists, and develop new strategies for teaching.

The Texas Shakespeare Festival hosts various stage combat workshops. Teaching artists can be brought into your school to work with students on basic skills or to help choreograph combat for specific productions.
