The Children's Shakespeare Theatre is an independent organzation of children ranging in age from 8 - 18 who come from Rockland County, NY and surrounding areas. The company is made up of two divisions: the Knaves (ages 8 - 14), the Rogues (ages 14 - 18). Under the aegis of Artistic Director Diana Green, each group produces multiple plays each season for presentation at various venues around Rockland County. The group's chief goal is to give young actors an opportunity to experience Shakespeare's words and deep understanding of the human experience, and to help them, through instruction in voice, movement, acting techniques and stage combat, to translate their experience to a broader audience of children and adults.

Membership in the group is open to all interested children within a reasonable commuting distance, and spaces are filled from a waiting list by audition as they become available.

CST holds auditions in June of each year for the following season. Company members are given priority consideration for parts; new members generally begin with smaller parts as space allows.
