About the Company: Frog and Peach

THE FROG AND PEACH THEATRE CO. is committed to dispelling the “rocket science” myth of Shakespeare by bringing wildly entertaining productions of Shakespeare’s plays to the people of New York.  We don’t dumb down the texts or engage in stunt period stuff (Wild West Winter’s Tale?  Not here.) —we painstakingly craft the scripts to appeal to Shakespeare fans and Gen-Y alike.  If you’ve ever walked the Upper West Side, you’ll know—it’s become astonishingly bifurcated in terms of income and level of education.  As former “troubled kids” themselves, the co-founders strive to engender a love of theatre in those who may not otherwise get an opportunity to see a live show, and to whet young appetites for the classics.   20% of all tickets are FREE to at-risk kids, their families, and the elderly.
