» Henry Kemp-Blair Shakespeare Festival

February 21 & 22, 2020

The Henry Kemp-Blair Shakespeare Festival for high school students is hosted annually each spring by Chapman University's Department of Theatre. Students spend the weekend on scene, monologue and design presentations and participating in workshops. This event is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience and learn more about performing Shakespeare. 

The Festival is FREE for schools and students to attend, however advance registration is required. We ask schools commit to attending both days of the Festival to benefit from the full program. All presentations must be drawn from the first folio of William Shakespeare. Certificates and theatrical books are awarded for outstanding monologues, outstanding scenes, and individual performances within scene presentations and outstanding designers.

We hope you'll join us!
