Classic Repertory Company, New Rep’s flagship educational outreach program, brings professional productions of classic and modern works of relevant literature to schools, colleges, and community centers throughout New England. Classic Repertory Company aims to elevate these great works from the page to the stage, bringing clarity of thought, language, and storytelling to these rich texts and complex characters.
Our touring productions include every aspect of the theatrical productions: the cast, crew, set, costumes, props, and sound. In addition, CRC provides study guides and post-performance talkback discussions with the cast. Further, CRC offers theatrical workshops allowing audiences to expand their understanding of literature, text, language, and collaboration.
Classic Repertory Company are currently touring productions of William Shakespeare’s MACBETH and John Steinbeck’s OF MICE AND MEN.

Whether New Rep’s Classic Repertory Company comes to you, or your group visits New Rep’s Weekday Matinee Performances at our theatres in Watertown, MA, we offer a variety of educational workshops to enhance the theatre experience.
TRYING ON SHAKESPEARE
Participants will learn to embody the language of Shakespeare by understanding the importance the Bard gives to image, gut response, emotional content, and clarity of thought. Through scene study and practical exercise, participants will gain greater understanding of Shakespeare’s texts.
In a “marathon” approach, participants will create an original piece of live theatre. In collaboration, the group will brainstorm/pick a topic, discuss/choose a theme, and develop a story line with characters, culminating in a short play.
DESIGN YOUR OWN WORKSHOP
Our Classic Repertory Company can help design a specific workshop experience to support your curriculum or audience needs.
