Players for hire, Nickel Shakespeare Girls (NSGs) perform at fairs, festivals, schools and events. On the "street" patrons are approached and asked to name ANY Shakespeare play, (or spin the "Wheel of Shakespeare!") and NSGs perform right on the spot, taking special requests and enjoy anything an audience can do to stump them.
Street Work William Shakespeare’s words come alive for the young and old. Name any play written by Shakespeare and NSGs will perform a selection: sometimes a fight, sometimes on our heads, sometimes delivered dramatically, but always with maximum energy and wild amounts of fun!
Stage Shows NSGs offer a variety of stage shows that can be modified to meet your needs. Each show can fit into a fast paced 30-minute time slot, but 45 minutes is an ideal amount of time to savor the richness and fun of the Bard’s text. And they love having post-show Q and A sessions!

All the World’s a Stage: Selections from the “Greatest Hits”

Corporate Events NSGs don't just perform at festivals or outdoor events! Another great thing about their act is that they can customize it to fit your needs, your guests and your space. Here are some options to consider:
Would you like NSGs roaming the event and performing for small groups of people or stationary performance for a seated audience?
Is your event family friendly or can material be PG-13 fans suitable for a more adult audience?
Would you like some drama? Some of NSGs stage shows have more dramatic elements and/or more traditional Shakespearean delivery. You tell them what you want - NSGs are extremely versatile.
