Register Now for Will Power: Shakespeare Education for All Ages

Posted: April 28, 2021.
The Vortex Theatre and the New Mexico Shakespeare Festival present Will Power, a Shakespeare-based education program for all ages. In 3 sessions in June 2021, students will discover The Bard by reading, writing, memorizing, analyzing, and—especially—performing the words of William Shakespeare. Both sonnets and plays will be utilized. We are currently planning for these to be in-person classes but that may change as required by NM Dept of Health protocols. Due to COVID restrictions, class size will be limited.
