About Our Company

"A crew of patches, rude mechanicals,

That work for bread upon Athenian stalls,

Were met together to rehearse a play"

-A Midsummer Night's Dream (III.ii)


The Rude Mechanicals are Dartmouth College's student-run Shakespeare company. It is the only student-run theater troupe at Dartmouth. The group comprises a diverse set of individuals, all of whom have some attraction, whether it be literary, theatrical, or otherwise, to the plays of William Shakespeare.

The group performs one play each term, a little more than midway through. The group holds auditions for new members once or twice each year, depending on its needs.


Our most recent production has been Romeo and Juliet.​

If you're a student interested in joining, you can check out our page on audition resources and schedules.
