If desired, each production can be followed by a Q and A with attending students. We also can customize programs if you are looking for a selection of scenes, a longer play or a play that is not listed above. All of our productions require only 10 minutes of set up and take down and we can work with you to achieve the program you are looking for. Please contact us to discuss supplementing your English or Theater programs with a Shakepeare or Classical theater production.
Summer Shakespeare Festival in the Parks
Where it all began! The oldest and primary stage program for the Hudson Shakespeare Company, our summer program of free Shakespeare in the parks began as staged readings for specific area parks in Jersey City, NJ and since has grown into a multi-city and multi-state tour for each of our summer productions. HSC produces 3-4 full shows, one for each month of the summer. While Shakespeare reigns supreme among our summer shows, HSC performs other classical titles.

HSC Second Stage
Our Second Stage program produces a wide range of titles during the off-summer season (September-April). We have performed in such varied locations as city courtrooms, public library community rooms, civic centers and museums. These shows, like our summer program are all self contained productions, that can brought in and taken out on a per performance basis and usually require no special arrangements from a hosting organization or venue. Specialized shows utilizing a venue's lighting and sound system are also available with us through advanced arrangement.
