Shakespeare in Action Workshops for Students

The students said that this was the BEST TRIP EVER!!!!

This is always my favorite trip.  I look forward to bringing another group of fifth graders there next year.

"I just wanted to tell you how very much my group enjoyed their workshop at the Folger. They absolutely loved each activity and came back with a renewed interest in reading Much Ado About Nothing. We will definitely be making another reservation for next year!"

- Julia Maxey

Severn School

Severna Park, MD 


Docents conduct 90-minute workshops and lead school groups through activities in our Elizabethan Theatre to make Shakespeare come alive.  In each workshop, students learn about Shakespeare's life, times, and work in an interactive, hands-on approach. 


The school visit program is offered on select mornings throughout the year at 9:00am and 11:00am, subject to the Theatre's availability. A full list of available dates can be obtained by emailing cstanger@folger.edu.


Group size is limited to 50 participants and the fee is $100.  Groups over 50 will be charged an additional "large group" fee of $50.
