ISF has a robust and cherished educational program. In addition to School of Theater summer, spring and fall camps and classes, ISF launches two statewide tours each spring, cast with professional actors, a transportable set, and boasting a production value as high as the Festival's mainstage pieces. The two tours are Idaho Theater for Youth (ITY) and Shakespearience (SHX). The casts travel to schools and community centers all over Idaho, bringing the experience of live theater to thousands of children in rural and under-served communities, sometimes for the very first time. Tour performances are approximately 45 minutes in duration.
ITY and SHX are 90% philanthropically funded thanks to our generous donors. Join us to learn more about how you can help ISF fulfill its mission: to produce great theater, entertain, and EDUCATE!

“Do you not know I am a woman? When I think, I must speak.”
Shakespeare’s most romantic comedy is this year’s Shakespearience tour. Having to flee the home of her uncle, Rosalind disguises herself as a man and brings along her cousin Celia and the clown Touchstone. Taking refuge in the Forest of Arden, they find adventure and romance. Mistaken identity and disguise lead to revelations of honesty and truth and the nature of love.
