We believe that the greatest learning experience we can provide is one that invites students to approach the plays as actors do: as a company of artists that uses active, exploratory problem-solving techniques to develop a greater understanding and enjoyment of Shakespeare’s stories, characters, and language. As teaching artists, we seek out ways to make language absolutely essential to this performative process, so that finding one’s voice in the lines of Shakespeare is exciting and rewarding for all learners.

HVSF Education Programs are designed to support the Common Core standards. Those New York State Public Schools that participate in the arts in education service from BOCES will be eligible to receive New York State aid for the program, if the program is processed through the service.
