Shakespeare Schools Programme

Here at The Gaiety School of Acting, we strive to ensure that every student gets a chance to experience Shakespeare’s work live, gain a deeper appreciation for his plays and understand how relevant his work can still be today. We are running two tours in the 2016/17 academic year:

Hamlet for Leaving Cert students will tour to Dublin, Cork and Athlone in October and November of 2016

Merchant of Venice and Romeo & Juliet for Junior Cycle students will tour together to Dublin, Cork and Portlaoise in January and February of 2017
