We are the Underground Shakespeare Company, the only group at Penn dedicated to performing the works of William Shakespeare and his contemporaries.

Next Event: Auditions!

Are you interested in trying acting, but worried about the time commitment?
Are you looking for a new way to meet people and get involved at Penn?
Are you curious about Shakespeare, but intimidated by all the fancy poetry?
Are you a clown at heart, always seeking that next opportunity to make ‘em laugh?

The Underground Shakespeare Company is holding
for a very special spring performance featuring some of Shakespeare’s most comic characters, as well as an original comedy written by two company members.
