CSC’s Stage2 Series provides the opportunity for students and their teachers to attend high-quality live theater created with them in mind. Stage2 is presented at the state of the art Sorenson Theater at Babson College in Wellesley, MA. These productions use Shakespeare’s original text and are performed by our CSC2 Company, a group of young professional actors in residency with us for the year. We focus on themes and stories told by this next generation of actors that will resonate with next generation of theater goers. These productions bring the vibrancy, clarity and immediacy that has been the hallmark of our work on the Boston Common for over twenty years. Stage2 is a perfect supplement for students already reading Shakespeare in their curriculum or as a first-time introduction. We strive to make each play accessible, intelligible and entertaining for all. In addition to our Stage2 productions, we also offer supplemental in-school workshops led by our teaching artists and CSC2 actors.
