AMERICAN SHAKESPEARE CENTER'S 2019/20 Mortal Fools Tour

ASC is offering three stunning plays:

 

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

CYMBELINE

THE GRAPES OF WRATH

 

Mid-September through mid-November 2019: Middle Atlantic, Northeast, New England

Late January through early April 2020: South, Midwest, Middle Atlantic  

 

Direct from the stage of the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton, Virginia, ASC on Tour delivers seriously fun performances to audiences at performing arts centers, universities, and high schools throughout the US. From single-day events to week-long residencies, ASC on Tour has earned its reputation as the preeminent Shakespeare touring group in the nation. ASC on Tour performs using conditions similar to those under which Shakespeare and The King's Men performed – surrounded by audience members who share the same light with the actors, each of whom play multiple roles.  

 

ASC on Tour includes education as a fundamental part of our mission. We not only take our artistic programming across the country, our troupe members are also educators, spreading the ASC’s methods of performance-based learning to new communities. We offer more than a dozen one-hour workshops covering a wide variety of topics such as rhetoric and verse, staging conditions, and textual variants. These workshops offer participants an exciting, hands-on learning experience in an intimate setting. We also offer a Talkback option which is a Q&A session held after a performance.

  • live, unplugged musical pre-shows and intermission
  • audience is brought into the world of the play through Shakespeare's Staging Conditions
  • easy load-in and load-out, few tech requirements
