Robinson Shakespeare Company

Shakespeare Cast Henry IV

Participants in the Robinson Shakespeare Company (RSC) learn about Shakespeare, acting, movement, text analysis, how to work as an ensemble, and more. The RSC has high expectations for young actors, because of the potential that belongs to each member. Many of the students will tell you their favorite part of the RSC is being part of the ensemble and explain that an ensemble ‘is like a family’. When young people participate in the RSC, they are a member of the ensemble and a part of the family.

The RSC meets on Thursday evenings (5:30-7:30) for students in grades 6-12 and Friday afternoons (4:00-5:30) for grades 3-5.
The RSC focuses on preparing for the Shakespeare at Notre Dame English Speaking Union Shakespeare Monologue Competition in the fall and produces full productions in the spring and at the end of the five-week Summer Shakespeare Camp.
