A 50-minute rendition of Shakespeare's The Two Gentlemen of Verona, performed by UCSC students and directed by professor Patty Gallagher.
Shakespeare to Go has been taking Shakespeare on the road since 1984, with a mission to connect with local youth and give back to the community. Each year, a Shakespeare to Go team—comprised of a faculty director and student actors, designers, stage managers, assistant directors, and dramaturgs from UC Santa Cruz—work innovatively to bring a Shakespeare play to life by making it relevant to younger audiences. While the new script is shortened, the richness of Shakespeare’s language always remains.
