Shakespeare for Seniors

We believe that Shakespeare is for everyone! Shakespeare for Seniors brings lively, interactive workshops to you. Serving the D.C. Metro Area, a team of docents will present information about the Folger and Shakespeare’s plays with activities designed for the senior community.


The Folger Shakespeare for Seniors program is designed to provide senior citizens an opportunity to be immersed in the world of Shakespeare.


These programs can be offered individually or as a four-part series.


1. Elizabethan life and times

2. Shakespeare and his theater

3. Shakespeare's language and scenes

4. The Folger Shakespeare Library


The cost of these programs is $400 for the four-workshop series and $150 for a single workshop.


We are able to design the program to meet the specific needs and interests of a group.


Please contact us to determine which program works best for your group!

Nicola D'Ascenzo. Seven Ages of Man. Stained glass, 1932.
