All the world's a stage

 As you shall prove us, praise us...

Upstart Crows of Santa Fe is a theater company for young people, age 10-18, with a focus on understanding and performing the works of William Shakespeare. Actors experience the plays first-hand, exploring Shakespeare's language and meaning with the help of experienced directors. There are no auditions - all who wish to participate will receive substantial roles. Most productions have two-four casts so that actors may take part in every aspect of the production, performing as well helping backstage. No prior theater experience is necessary. The company believes that great performances evolve from understanding the texts and collaborating on the productions.The Crows perform three plays a year - with productions in the Spring, Summer, and Fall as well as workshop productions. They have an extensive outreach program and also host workshops for all ages on Shakespeare's language with Dr. Robin P. Williams, Shakespeare scholar. 

The Crows are associated with Santa Fe Performing Arts and are delighted to rehearse in their theater. The Crows perform at SFPA, the Santa Fe Botanical Garden, the Scottish Rite Temple, El Museo Cultural, and Warehouse 21.
