Theatre of New Jersey is pleased to assist educators by providing
comprehensive study guides for each of our Main Stage and
Shakespeare LIVE! productions. These guides are provided
free of charge to assist teachers in preparing students to
view the plays and integrating the play into their classroom
Each guide contains
a brief synopsis; background information on the author, the
play, the production and its themes; pre- and post-show activities
to enhance the educational impact of the students' theatregoing
experience; a select bibliography; and a section on standards.
Each guide is saved
in PDF format. To open, read, and print the guides, you'll
need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you can download for free
To download each guide, click the name of the desired show.
Each guide is the
property of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, but may
be reproduced freely for educational use only.
Study guides will
be made available on this page as they are completed, usually
2-3 weeks prior to the first student performance of each show.
