Take the Stage 

National Scenic Design Competition

Shakespeare on the Plaza and ABQ Public Art present TAKE THE STAGE, a national design competition for a public, interactive art installation on Civic Plaza, which will also serve as the setting for Shakespeare on the Plaza’s summer repertory of plays. The winning design will be built and administered in collaboration with Shakespeare on the Plaza, The Department of Cultural Services, SMG, and other public and private partners.
Shakespeare on the Plaza is an unabashedly public theatre program that seeks to narrow the gap between audience and the theatrical art form. The TAKE THE STAGE program is a furthering of that public-oriented mission - to open up theatre to the public, allowing them to play and explore in the same space as our artists.
