    In addition to the annual Boston Common productions, CSC presents several free play-reading events during the year: Theatre in the Rough, Shakespeare & Law as well as Shakespeare & Leadership. CSC fulfills its educational mission with actor-training programs for pre-professional actors with its Summer Academy. Throughout the year, CSC partners with area high schools and Boys & Girls Clubs to provide in and after-school theater activities to inner-city youth. Recent productions include Twelfth Night, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Coriolanus, All’s Well That Ends Well (2012 Elliot Norton Award-winner for Best Production, Large Theater), Othello, and The Comedy of Errors. CSC is the Resident Theatre of Babson College.
