Catholic Shakespeare Troupe

Donahue Academy’s annual Shakespeare performance is a high school experience like none other. This program has helped cast members improve as students, actors, singers and friends! Our plays are not ordinary high school musicals but an engaging experience for both actor and viewer.

Notably, Donahue Academy’s students perform on a thrust stage.

This allows actors to engage with the audience on all sides and leads to much improv comedy. What makes our shows so unique is the modern twist our students add to them. Both modern and original songs are performed by the cast at various point throughout the play. The opportunity to take part in our Shakespearean production greatly improves the classical education students receive at Donahue Academy.
