The 28th Annual Denver Public Schools Shakespeare Festival will be on Friday, May 11, 2012.
Approximately 5,000 DPS students will perform at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA).
This nationally recognized festival is the only Folger Site to have received the coveted Folger Library Shakespeare Stewardship Award.
We are the oldest and largest Student Shakespeare Festival in the country.
This day-long Festival is held in downtown Denver and provides the opportunity for students to perform scenes and sonnets from the works of William Shakespeare as well as demonstrate the dance, and vocal and instrumental music of Shakespeare’s time.
The Festival opens with ceremonies at the Daniels and Fisher Tower, followed by a short parade down the 16th Street Mall to the DCPA stages.
Performances last throughout the day on multiple stages and are open and free to the public.
