About the Tour

Presented by Asolo Rep and the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training, the annual educational tour brings exciting 45-minute adaptations of classic literature to schools and community venues throughout the state of Florida. Shakespeare’s original language comes alive through energetic contemporary staging, performed by the talented young artists of the FSU/Asolo Conservatory.

Each performance is followed by a discussion period with the cast.

What Is A Tour Performance Like?

The production is professionally staged with a cast of eleven, but designed with minimal technical requirements so it can perform in a variety of venues. In 60 minutes our artists present a fast-paced performance, immediately followed by a post-show discussion with the cast. Educational resources, including a production guide and video resources for classrooms, address Florida and Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.

Who Should See This Production?

This production is conceived to reach school, college, and community groups, and is recommended for grades 6 and up. This adaptation will provide an accessible introduction to live Shakespeare performance for first-time audiences, but the imaginative and theatrical staging will also delight and enrich students who have already studied Shakespeare's work. Our touring productions hope to welcome and inspire audiences at every level of experience to the wonderful possibilities contained within classic plays.

Are Any Performances Open To The Public?

In addition to dozens of school visits, the 2018 tour will include several community performances which are open to the public. To request a school visit, click "Request A Perfomance" above. For dates of public performances please click here.
