The Viola Project
The Viola Project celebrates play and performance in young people while creating a foundation for young women to stand up, advocate for themselves, and demand inclusion: inclusion in the classroom, in the workspace, in the world and on the stage. Our students have the unique opportunity to examine critical issues through creative play, interdisciplinary workshops, and, of course, Shakespeare. Why? Shakespeare's characters are determined to get what they need, to be understood, to be listened to. There is no better teacher for how to use language to make your voice heard than William Shakespeare. The Viola Project welcomes all youth ages 10-16 who culturally identify as girls and women, regardless of their race, class, ethnicity, sexual orientation or ability.
