PROFESSIONAL TOURING PRODUCTIONS

In 2019, Boston Theater Company will be touring three  professional Shakespeare shows to schools throughout Massachusetts. BTC provides all aspects of the production! We bring a cast of professional actors to your institution and we adapt to any size audience, from a large auditorium to a small classroom. All performances have a complimentary talk back session afterwards. Our touring productions are available February through May.

Hamlet

BTC will be touring our signature unique female-driven production of Hamlet. Our dynamic ensemble of professional actors retells this rich story with a new twist. A handful of the roles are reversed gender. We have carefully crafted this script to showcase powerful women while maintaining the show's original themes

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

BTC will be showcasing one of Shakespeare's classic laugh-out-loud comedies! Our team honors Shakespeare’s hilarious text while bringing a fresh, modern take to this beloved story

Romeo and Juliet

BTC will be performing Shakespeare's most iconic love story. Our modern adaption reduces the text while leaving the remaining words unaltered. This production will showcase the versatility of the timeless verse, which Shakespeare wrote at the age of 25, in a fresh and fun way.

This modern approach deeply engaged Shore’s Upper Schoolers... The talented professional actors breathed life into the tragedy with contemporary clothing, minimalist staging, and frequent role-switching. Impassioned, emotional performances ending with the climactic death scene at the end of the drama made this Hamlet a wonderful experience for Shore students and faculty alike.
Thank you and your amazing company so much for a lively, beautifully acted and concise performance today! The show was such a treat — so well acted, delivered with humor and heart in all the right spots! Your performance will really help us launch our Hamlet unit with a careful eye on production possibilities and power dynamics, vis-a-vis gender roles and social standing.
