CSF in the Schools: Shakespeare & Violence Prevention Tour

The Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s touring program uses live performance and the latest school violence research to bring a unique educational experience to K-12 schools across Colorado. The school performances are abridged versions of Macbeth and Twelfth Night performed by professional actors that focus on themes of bullying and the cycle of violence often found throughout Shakespeare’s plays. Following each performance, students participate in classroom workshops that focus on violence prevention. The festival actors guide workshop participants through hands-on activities that encourage students to be upstanders. The workshops and study guides incorporate the latest research on effective anti-bullying practices from the University of Colorado Boulder’s Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence. Students improve their Shakespeare literacy and learn intervention strategies they can use effectively to prevent violence and when they see mistreatment happening around them.
