The MIT Shakespeare Ensemble is a self-sustaining community dedicated to the exploration of Shakespearean and other classical works. We are a group of students and community members who are committed to forming an open and fun-loving team focused on learning the various aspects of theater. We share a common interest in the idea of the theater ensemble: a group of people who work together on a long-term basis to produce shows. This emphasis on the ensemble adds another dimension to our work. We generally perform one full-length show and one night of scenes every term.
