Delivered in partnership with the Stratford Festival, our new Create and Connect program invites participants ages 12-16 from the GTA, the City of Stratford and Perth County to explore the world of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night together as their own online theatre company, discovering many elements of theatre through hands-on arts experiences guided by professional teaching artists from both DAREarts and the Stratford Festival.

Topics explored will include: connecting Shakespeare to our lives today, the many layers of theatre that go beyond acting on stage (such as set design, costuming, writing, etc.) and how we can build connections to ourselves and each other along the way.

Delivered via Zoom, the program runs Monday to Friday 10:30am – noon from July 19-30, 2021.

This program is offered free-of-charge to all participants to promote inclusion for families who may not be able to access programming otherwise. 

 Bonus: all participants will receive a free supply kit! Registration is required and spaces are limited.
