A continuing series of live performances (30-60 minute “miniproductions”), staged all over San Diego County. These are written by David Wiener (Writer-In-Residence). They are designed to be enjoyed by everyone in the community, from schoolchildren to seniors.
Throughout the history of the SDSS, we’ve been committed to bringing Shakespeare’s plays to our community. There have been a number of programs developed, to be presented to small community groups, schools, nursing homes, or other venues.
These events are scheduled as volunteers, money, and availability allow. As we have more information about scheduled events, they will be listed on our Events Overview page.
- “The Shakespeare Prescription” programs can be presented at care facilities, rest homes, senior centers, shelters, hospitals, and other venues where medical care and rehabilitation and provided.
- “Bard@TheMall” programs can be presented at shopping centers anywhere in the County.
- “Bard@School” programs are suitable for student audiences from middle school through high school and are presented in the school auditorium, theatre, outdoor lunch court, or any other available performance space.
- “Bard@TheLibrary” programs can be presented in libraries. Programs are flexible enough to be performed on a stage, in a community meeting room, or even outside, depending on the resources of the facility and the preferences of library administrators.
- The Board has approved an Outreach Internship Program. This program seeks to establish long-term relationships with local colleges and universities, creating internships for theatre and drama students who will receive credit for producing, directing, and acting in San Diego Shakespeare Society Outreach Programs.
- New Outreach projects will be posted and described here, as they become active. Possibilities include radio-theatre productions (working title: “Mind’s Eye Shakespeare”); more on this as things develop!
