Shakespeare in the Classroom Request

Thank you for your interest in Shakespeare in the Classroom with Royal Arts.

"A hit, a very palpable hit."
-- Hamlet, Act 5, Scene 2

Whether you are reading Hamlet with its climactic duel, Romeo & Juliet or other literature with fencing, we offer workshops for your students that will allow them to experience the duel or be the one to slay Mercutio. This is not us acting it out ( although we could ). This is your students donning fencing gear and trying it for themselves. There is no better way to experience what is going on in the story.

We travel to schools studying the Bard, particularly Romeo & Juliet or Hamlet. Students will relive the Montague vs Capulet battle.

Don't limit yourself there. If there is another story you would like to share, let us know. We also do workshops for history classes, French classes and much more. Let us know what your ideas are in the comments below.

This workshop is limited by scheduling and distance travelled. We can accomodate multiple workshops for larger groups. Travel cost may be required.

This event can be scheduled for participants between 12 and 105. We can support up to 50 participants in one session.
The cost is $200.00.


Please give us as many date options as possible. Due to numerous requests and our travel competition schedule, we may not be able to accommodate your first preference date. Bookings usually occur on Saturdays, Sundays, and occasionally Friday. Some dates are never available:
  • 1st Weekend of March every year - we run the Arnold Fencing Classic that weekend.
  • Last weekend of June and first entire week of July as we are at the US Fencing National Championships

Please provide any relevant information or special needs you have, including any information about very large groups or special events not listed on our website.
