Upstart Crows of Santa Fe is a Shakespeare troupe for young people age 10-18 which produces full-length, uncut plays with a focus on understanding the works.
We explore Shakespeare’s language and meaning with the help of experienced directors and professional actors, learn stage fighting from Fight Director Ambrose Ferber, and participate in outreach to schools, libraries, and community centers, sharing their passion for the plays.
There are no auditions and no prior theater experience is necessary - the only requirement is a desire to do the work. All who participate receive substantial roles. Most productions have two to four casts so that actors can take part in every aspect of production.
The Crows perform three full plays a year, with productions in the spring, summer and fall/early winter, as well as workshops and dramatic readings.
The Crows also host workshops for all ages on Shakespeare's language with Dr. Robin P. Williams, Shakespeare scholar
Performances at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden, the Scottish Rite Temple, El Museo Cultural, and Warehouse 21.
