Study Guide Archive
The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is pleased to assist educators by providing comprehensive study guides for each of our Main Stage and Shakespeare LIVE! productions. These guides are provided free of charge to assist teachers in preparing students to view the plays and integrating the play into their classroom curricula.
Each guide contains a brief synopsis; background information on the author, the play, the production and its themes; pre- and post-show activities to enhance the educational impact of the students' theatregoing experience; a select bibliography; and a section on The Core Standards.
Study guides for the current season's shows can be found on the individual show pages (located in the Student Matinees and In Your School sections of the website). Below you will find links to study guides from past seasons.
Each guide is saved in PDF format. To open, read, and print the guides, you'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you can download for free from www.adobe.com. To download each guide, click the name of the desired show.
Each guide is the property of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, but may be reproduced freely for educational use only.
