The Greenshow

Be sure to catch The Greenshow one-hour before each performance of
Shakespeare on the Common.

 

What is The Greenshow?

Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's Greenshow features actors from its Apprentice Program, CSC's actor training program for emerging young theater artists. Traditionally, a Greenshow is the prelude to an evening's performance, meant to prepare an audience for the main event.  This performance runs approximately 30 minutes, is fun, lively, and appropriate for the whole family: a great way to learn more about the main stage production.
