Shakespeare High

Shakespeare High
?Shakespeare High? is a feature-length documentary about a determined group of teens in Southern California whose immersion in high-school drama programs compels them to overcome difficulties and create better lives. The film demonstrates that arts education, specifically drama in public schools, is not a luxury but a necessity.

The film follows several teens from all over Southern California, as they prepare and then compete in the 90th Annual DTASC (Drama Teachers Association of Southern California) Shakespeare Competition. All of these teens face challenges at home including poverty, gangs, drugs, lack of mentorship/parenting, and the trials and tribulations of adolescence. They tell their inspirational personal stories and we see the impact that arts education has on their lives by providing community, focus, passion, communication skills, self-confidence, and self-awareness.

The teens stories are interspersed with commentary from well-known celebrities including Kevin Spacey, Val Kilmer and Richard Dreyfuss, all of whom are alumni of the DTASC program, and all of whose lives were changed through their participation.
