 2014 - 2015 School and Community Centers Tour


The ISF Touring Company brings its exciting and theatrical "guerrilla Shakespeare" approach to Shakespeare's great works: Othello, Romeo and Juliet, and As You Like It. Once again, 8 actors will play all the parts in a 40-minute abridgment that can adapt to any space and includes a lot of audience interaction. Let us know which show(s) your school would like to see.

The troupe is now booking performances for schools and community institutions for the Fall. The company tours on Fridays beginning October 10 and finishing on December 5.

Q & A session follows the show - students learn about the arts, theater, acting, Shakespeare, and college.

The cost is $200. Some schools are full-pay, some reduced-funding, and some we need to do for free. Tell us which you are when booking.

For more information and to book a show, please contact
Dick Folse at (309) 438-8697
