In 2018, Indianapolis Shakespeare Company introduced our Traveling Troupe, the community and education outreach arm of our organization.
Through this professional extension of our Company, we presented a 45-minute version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth June 2018, at various summer camps, day care settings, senior facilities, churches, and libraries.
