Children ages 8-18 will learn from and join with professional theater artists to tell the action-packed epic tale Ramayana. The ancient Indian epic is a true superhero story to capture the imagination! Follow Prince Rama on his quest to free his love, Princess Sita, from the evil Demon King Ravana. Flying monkeys, monsters, magical birds, and demons—this story has it all. Children of all experience levels and backgrounds are welcome. San Francisco Shakespeare Festival is proud to join with EnActe Arts and the City of Cupertino for the first time to present this youth production.
San Francisco Shakespeare Festival
We believe that Shakespeare experienced in a communal setting – whether it be outdoors, in a classroom or in a theater – elates the soul, inspires the mind and unifies those who sit beside each other. For the majority of our audiences, we are the first point of contact with Shakespeare and the performing arts. Our programming represents the plays in their finest light, demonstrates their relevance to today’s society, and inspires our students and audiences to seek out additional theatrical experiences. By lowering practical and perceptual barriers, the Festival encourages broad participation in the arts and makes these artistic activities an active part of community life.
The Festival plays a vital role in the Bay Area arts community, serving as a catalyst for audience development by reaching thousands of people who otherwise do not attend live theater or may have never experienced it at all. The San Francisco Shakespeare Festival is dedicated to arts education, using its programs to foster a life-long appreciation of learning and the arts.
The Festival is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to make the words and themes of Shakespeare accessible to everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, financial status or level of education.
