Touchstone Players

photo_oneStudents in grades 3-8 can experience what it might be like to travel back in time to the 1600′s and be part of the fun and excitement of Shakespeare’s acting company. Participants will hone their acting skills, make friends, build confidence, and develop an appreciation and understanding of Shakespeare’s work.

Plus, it’s a “malmsey-butt” of fun!

During the rehearsal process, students will have the opportunity to:

  • Work one-on-one with professional actors and educators;
  • Learn and practice the same acting techniques the Baltimore Shakespeare Factory uses in its productions;
  • Study Shakespeare’s poetic language in ways that make it easy to understand, and learn how to use it to inform their performance; and
  • Bring some of Shakespeare’s most famous characters to life!


This Fall, the Touchstone Players present “The Taming of the Shrew”

  • Rehearsals are Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 5-7pm, beginning September 22. Only two days per week required.
