An impactful evening of Shakespeare with Henry

Hosted by Carol March and Tara Lewis

April 22, 2024 | 6 pm - 8 pm | The Home of Carol March (6425 Northport Drive, Dallas, TX 75230)

Junior Players was excited to bring the first ever youth focused Shakespeare in Prison program to Texas in 2023 – making Dallas home to a groundbreaking new program as recognized by being selected as a TACA Pop-Up Grant recipient. 

Embarking on a collaborative journey, Junior Players and The Henry Wade Juvenile Justice Center will continue to join hands to empower incarcerated youth. Together, we paired young individuals with professional Junior Players' teaching artists. Through this partnership, they delved into the rich tapestry of Shakespearean works, culminating in captivating performances of excerpts from 'Henry V.'

Now, with the success of our initial endeavor, we eagerly anticipate the next chapter. Our sights are set on the stirring tragedy of 'Macbeth,' slated for the summer/fall of 2024.

Join us for an evening filled with illuminating discussions, live performances, heartfelt testimonials, and distinguished guests. Your presence will help us pave the way for the continuation of this inspiring program.

Every contribution from this event directly supports the Junior Players' Shakespeare with Henry program, ensuring its vitality and reach. Together, let's celebrate the transformative power of the arts and the boundless potential within every young change agent. 

Light hors d'oeuvres and beverages will be provided. RSVP below by April 15, 2024 to attend.
