Actors From The London Stage has called Notre Dame its American home since 2000, when it relocated from the University of North Carolina. Its members hail from such prestigious theater companies as the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal National Theatre of Great Britain and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, among others. Each company member takes on two or three major roles and several minor ones. By using minimal sets and costumes, the actors ask audiences to be imaginatively engaged in the performance, just as Shakespeare intended. The company, which is based and trains in England, tours U.S. colleges every year.
Part of its stated mission is to "bring [our] knowledge to a wide variety of classes, not only for courses on Shakespeare but also theatre, literature, and communication courses. [We] get students up out of their chairs and act with them to learn how Shakespeare's texts become scripts, words become actions, and actions become meaning."
