A new series debuting in Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s 2013-2014 season. An expansion of CSC’s longstanding American Voices, TITR is a script-in-hand reading series presented without common theatrical elements like sets or costumes. These pared-down readings uniquely engage the audience by immersing them in the immediacy of the text and the actors’s performances, allowing one’s own imagination to take creative flight.
A favorite script-in-hand reading series, Law and Leadership each bring together local, state and national lawyers and judges and renowned business leaders with some of Boston’s best local acting talent to perform Shakespeare plays each season. Each performance is followed by a panel discussion addressing questions and themes in the text that resonate for these professionals within their modern fields.
CSC’s touring initiative to local parks brings free outdoor theater to neighborhood venues and under-served communities. Past seasons have included: Shakespeare on Love, a collection of love scenes complimented with popular music performed by CSC Apprentices and Bard Over Broadway a new Shakespeare-inspired musical-theater review performed in collaboration with The Boston Conservatory.
A Boston tradition since 1996, CSC has been presenting fully-staged productions of Shakespeare plays free-of-charge to Boston audiences.
Sponsored by New England Conservatory and the Free For All Concert Fund, Commonwealth Concerts is a series of pre-show concerts featuring a wide range of musical styles before performances of Shakespeare on the Common.
Special events--including our Annual Gala--held throughout the year to raise funds to support all of CSC’s FREE programming.
