Children's Festival (March 2019)

Starts:  Mar 26, 2019 9:30 AM (ET)
Ends:  Mar 27, 2019 1:00 PM (ET)
The first round of our 2019 Children's Festivals at the Folger! 

Every spring, the Emily Jordan Folger Children's Shakespeare Festival brings hundreds of students in grades 3–6 together on our stage to perform Shakespeare for one another. Students engage with Shakespeare's language & characters performing scenes, and learning from the performances of others as they work together to create an abbreviated version of a single play to life.

The Festival, which is open to schools in the DC, Virginia, and Maryland metropolitan area, features a full Folger experience and memories that will last a lifetime.

Registration for the March and May dates are booked up, but stay tuned for our Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 festivals!
