The Colorado Shakespeare Festival's nationally known school anti-violence tour kicked off its third season this winter and will perform around Colorado through April.
Created in collaboration with the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence and the Department of Theatre & Dance at CU-Boulder, and made possible through funding from CU Outreach, the Boulder Arts Commission, ASCI, the OAK Foundation, and ONE Lafayette, the program has now been seen by more than 40,000 Colorado schoolchildren.
The tour uses an abbreviated version of a Shakespeare play, followed by workshops, to help kids talk about and prevent violence in schools. The inaugural tour featured "Twelfth Night" and was followed up by "The Tempest" in 2013. This spring, "Much Ado About Nothing" is on tour.
