|Shakespeare in the Courts | Pittsfield | 2011
Shakespeare in the Courts was a collaborative partnership between the Berkshire Juvenile Court and the professional theatre group Shakespeare & Company. Adjudicated teens were "sentenced" to the project by the court and work with Shakespeare & Company artists to learn how to direct their emotions into a positive release by enacting Shakespeare's plays. The program culminated in a final performance before family, friends and court personnel. Since beginning in 2001, over 165 at-risk youth have completed this extremely successful program.
