The Emily Jordan Folger Children's Festival for students in grades 3 to 6 is held each spring on the stage of our Elizabethan Theatre.  It is open to schools in DC, Virginia, and Maryland.  This exciting and popular event features surprise guests, audience participation, and great performances of Shakespeare's plays.


Each group performs a scene or combination of scenes from any of Shakespeare's works. Cuts are permitted; modern language adaptations are not. Shakespeare's own words must be used.


Performances last between 10 and 20 minutes. Balcony seating is available for parents and general audience members.
