Join us to watch our Young Company perform one of Shakespeare’s more intense and fraught stories.

Hampshire Shakespeare’s Young Company draws talented youth ages 13-18 from throughout the Pioneer Valley area who audition to be a part of each summers Young Company production. The resulting group of young actors then works intensively for a period of two weeks (possibly with some rehearsals beforehand) with a team of directors, coaches and mentors to perform a full-length Shakespeare play. The three Young Company performances are often the most popular and highly attended performances of the season as our young actors perform the chosen play for family, friends, and the public.

Thank You to our Season Sponsors!

Rain Policy

Worried about rain? Don’t be! We’ve got a plan for that!

As an outdoor theatre company committed to the safety of both audiences and performers, we may sometimes have to adjust for inclement weather. This may include simple delays or holding the show. If we proceed on performing at the Renaissance Center, we recommend all audience members bring rain proof apparel, but the company will have a few umbrellas and ponchos available for use. Alternatively, we may move to our rain space at Emily Dickinson Hall at Hampshire College.

If there is inclement weather, a decision about where the performance will be held will be made by 12:00 PM the day of. Check your email or our Facebook page for these communications. If you unsure or have any questions, call (413) 345-2350 or email
