Highwood's Home School classes & annual Shakespeare production are open to all interested students in grades 1 - 7. The only prerequisite is a desire to learn, explore, meet new people, and collaborate!
Students work together with instructors that specialize in their field, and are often coached by other performing professionals. Members are consistently challenged and inspired to take risks, do their best, and develop as confident collaborators and creators. All 8-week classes culminate in a final showcase performance for family and friends.

Highwood’s Fall home school classes will have students reading one of Shakespeare's greatest plays and adapting it to be their own while still using Shakespeare's original language. Students should be prepared to read, research and get creative.
Highwood’s Winter home school class focuses on rehearsing and performing the Shakespeare play students adapted in the Fall. Students prepare a complete production (with costumes, props, and sets). Students should be excited to perform and work together.
Highwood’s spring home school class is all about acting and performing skills, allowing you to build experience and knowledge for future productions.
