About Young Company:

Hampshire Shakespeare’s Young Company draws talented youth ages 11-19 from throughout the Pioneer Valley area who audition to be a part of each summer’s Young Company production. The resulting group of young actors then works intensively for a period of two weeks with a team of theatre professionals to perform a full-length Shakespeare play. The three Young Company performances are often the most popular and highly attended performances of the season!
