The LIVE! at the Kirby program offers special school-time performances of the Shakespeare LIVE! educational touring productions in The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s home, the intimate 308-seat F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre (located on the beautiful campus of Drew University in Madison, NJ). This is an excellent opportunity for schools with space limitations, homeschoolers and others to enjoy these dynamic productions in a professional theatre setting, followed by a lively talkback with the actors.

Additional weekend/evening performances available for families and others—call the Box Office at 973-408-5600 for details.
