Parker Arts presents our first annual Shakespeare Festival, a theatrical competition for Parker middle schools and high schools. Students from participating schools will perform a scene or portion of a scene from a Shakespeare play or soliloquy of their choosing and be evaluated by a team of judges. The six highest scoring performances will perform on the PACE Center Main Stage and will receive the Bard’s Prize for the 2017 Parker Arts Shakespeare Festival!
Parker Arts mission in offering a Shakespeare festival is to:
Increase appreciation and understanding of Shakespeare works
Provide an opportunity for youth to perform
Foster community creativity and engagement
Generate awareness of Parker Arts education and enrichment opportunities
