Have you been a member of the SIP ensemble?

Then you can be a part of Shakespeare Reclaimed.


Shakespeare Reclaimed — as with all things SIP — was developed by our in-prison ensembles and alumni. This post-release extension of SIP provides alumni with support, mentorship, and space to develop not only the skills you gained while in our prison program, but also the option for more formal training in theatre arts, management, and administration.

Our ensemble members talk all the time about finding a home in SIP. We're hoping to welcome everyone home again—but this time on the outside. Here's some of what you can expect when you join the Shakespeare Reclaimed ensemble:


  • Ongoing mentorship and support from the same SIP staff you knew on the inside

  • Personal and professional development opportunities

  • Connections with fellow SIP alumni and the broader arts community

  • An in-person support group for local alumni
