Now offering classes and tours across a 3-state area!
Mended Wing Theatre Company is comprised of recent graduates and current BFA students from North Carolina School of the Arts, School of Drama. UNCSA is a top-ranked creative and performing arts conservatory in Winston-Salem, NC, founded in 1963 as America’s first public arts conservatory.
This project was born out of a desire to bring classical theatre to students accessible and affordably in a format that is relevant and stimulating for modern audiences. We see this as a chance to encourage the next generation with overarching themes of hope, compassion, communication, and acceptance.
Our inaugural tour around Georgia in May 2017 included a interactive production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream and a talk-back with the cast. Our second season, in May 2018, took us back to Georgia and also to Miami, Florida with The Two Gentlemen of Verona. Season Three's tour of Twelfth Night brought us to schools in Winston-Salem, Atlanta, south Georgia, and northern Florida.
In March of 2019 Mended Wing teaching artists taught classes on our approach to tackling Shakespeare to middle and high school students at the Clayton County Center for Performing Arts. In March 2020 we returned with more classes, and a production of Macbeth.
