Here's What's new at Stages

FREE outreach tour for Houston-area campuses

by Stages Repertory Theatre on February 12, 2013

You know who’s cool? Shakespeare.

As part of our year-round education programs, Stages Repertory Theatre is partnering with the Shakespeare Globe Centre of the Southwest to present a free 45-minute performance and discussion for Houston-area campuses. Director Rutherford Cravens brings together four students - Christine Arnold, Nicole Gamache, Miguel Garcia and Paige Warton - from the University of Houston School of Theatre, along with professional actor Eva Laporte, for the five-person adaptation. Tours are available throughout the spring 2013 semester and are provided at no cost to the school! 

If you are a parent, teacher or administrator, you’ll want to check out the free educator preview on Saturday February 23, followed by a talk-back with the director and cast! Middle school and high school students are invited to attend the event at Stages, too – after all, we’ll need someone to tell us if we’re cool!

It’s free. There’s snacks. And sword-fighting. (if that doesn’t describe the perfect outing, we don’t know what does!)
