Treehouse Shakespeare Ensemble, Mary Baldwin University, Shakespeare and Performance, MFA


Treehouse Shakespeare Ensemble, the 2022 - 2023 MFA company of Mary Baldwin University's Shakespeare and Performance program, is a Staunton-based theatre group reaching out with the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries to audiences new and familiar, near and far. We create supportive environments for education and performance where we dare to illuminate lesser known texts and reinvent familiar titles. We engage with audiences through resident and touring shows, workshops, and supplemental digital resources to give voice to stories of female agency, sexual identity, and communities in peril. 

Built on a stable foundation, a treehouse is a safe place for personal development through imagination and exploration. Like building a treehouse in the supportive branches of an old tree, we believe that theatre can build on existing cultural conversations to help inspire creative solutions for communities while encouraging creativity in our audiences. Through our commitment to unifying performance and education, we hope that the seeds of conversation and creativity will continue to flourish within and beyond our found community long after our season.

Treehouse Shakespeare Ensemble is branching out and building up. Come grow with us.
