Not exactly a sitcom, but a 1999 of "The Famous Jett Jackson" on 
Nickelodeon featured a high school performance of Julius Caesar.  The 
play suffered a serious rewrite, though, as it ends with Caesar's 
assassination, if memory serves.

Did anyone mention the Moonlighting Version of the Taming of the Shrew? 
There are timeless jokes in it relevant to Shakespeare.  I continued to 
use it with high school students even after the sitcom was cancelled and 
found it helped interest kids in Shakespeare.

I think there was a Brady Bunch episode with Marcia as Juliet in a high 
school production, or maybe I just dreamed it . . .  Now that I think 
about it, Jan may have had a bit part in Macbeth (?) in another episode.

Boston Public "Chapter Sixty-Five"

The Shakespeare storyline in that episode of "Boston Public" involved 
Vice Principal Scott Gruber, who was played in the series by 
Shakespearean actor Anthony Heald. (I saw him do a great turn as Iago in 
Ashland a few years ago.) The Shakespeare raps were delightful.

There is an episode of CLUELESS first transmitted 13/2/1996, entitled 
ROMEO AND CHER in which the teacher Mr Hall (Wallace Shawn) has assigned 
his class to study 'Romeo and Juliet'. Amber (Elisa Donovan) sings a 
snatch from 'West Side Story' and tells her teacher that this is a 
reworking of Shakespeare's play. Mr Hall is not impressed and says 'she 
seems to think that every assignment is open to interpretation'.

I believe there was an episode of Saved by the Bell in which they were 
studying Romeo and Juliet.

Best,
