Queen Elizabeth I, and William Shakespeare

A core value of the DPS Shakespeare Festival is students first. This value is ever present with our Festival being opened by DPS student representatives. The distinction of being chosen as either Queen Elizabeth I or William Shakespeare is an honor that empowers both the student’s artistic voice and that of the entire student assembly. The students selected will speak at the Festival’s Opening Ceremonies on and will be ambassadors throughout the Festival. To apply for this opportunity please fill out the form below.
