2020-2021 Season

In Fall of 2020 The Bardlings program transitioned online for an exciting project, The Bardlings Community Connection. With a focus on theatre and social change, The Bardlings explored the power of art to tell stories, create hope, and inspire change. We enjoyed a multitude of workshops, guest lectures, and presentations surrounding respect, diversity, inclusion, storytelling, justice, theatre skills, and of course, Shakespeare!

For our Spring 2021 semester, The Bardlings will write and rehearse the 5th edition of ShakespeaREtold, a collection of Shakespearean scenes which Bardlings will study, and rewrite with a focus on themes that will inspire social change – this performance will be pre-filmed and screened at the 2021 Southern Shakespeare Festival.

Inspiring Social Change
