The Stanford Shakespeare Company

What fun

Dedicated to the performance of free, innovative, and high-quality Shakespeare at Stanford and in the Bay Area.

StanShakes is not only committed to performing full shows during the school year, but also to reaching out to the surrounding community. We participate twice a year in Splash, the educational day camp held on the Stanford campus, and are delighted to visit schools in the area to hold workshops.

Our outreach program, run by active company members, has visited many area high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools. This year we hope to expand our network of teachers and schools.

If you are an educator in the area, feel free to contact our outreach coordinator and outreach assistant, Nik and Audrey, at and to set up a visit. We are flexible when it comes to class length, size, and curriculum and are eager to come and work with your students! We are available for workshops starting in October 2018.
