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 free of charge 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 3 will begin with a tour of Twelfth Night 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. And beginning in the fall semester of 2019 a similar workshop will be available to schools, community centers, and libraries throughout the Atlanta metro area!
