The educational touring wing of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, Shakespeare LIVE! has performed for over 300,000 students in New Jersey, New York and beyond. Since its inception in 1997, its abridged productions have been hailed as innovative, visually stunning and accessible to students. Despite the abbreviated length of each play, LIVE! prides itself on keeping Shakespeare's language intact. The professionally-acted and directed productions are dynamic and appealing, exciting and engaging, witty and imaginative—giving students of all ages the opportunity to experience Shakespeare's works as the playwright intended—in performance.

In-depth study guides, post-performance discussions and interactive workshops complete the learning experience!
