Education

Shakespeare Education at the asc

"The most convenient place that I can think of for such receipt of learning is Blackfriars."
- King Henry, from Henry VIII

Our offerings of workshops, performances, actor training, and summer programs are specially tailored for you to experience Shakespeare as you never have before. From readings, lectures, Student Matinees and our Talk Back! Series, to our international Blackfriars Conference, the ASC has an enriching program just right for you.

RESEARCH AND SCHOLARSHIP

The bi-annual Blackfriars Conference, our relationship with the MLitt/MFA Program at Mary Baldwin College, our 5-week NEH Summer Institute, our Staged Reading series, additional collegiate partnerships, opportunities for advanced study, and online and on-site archival resources, are all a part of ASC's foundation of combining theatre and scholarship.


The ASC offers a variety of resources for educators including student matinees, study guides, student workshops and actor-led tours, teacher seminars, and a guide for helping to determine theage appropriateness of each of our shows.


Each summer we host our 3-week intensive American Shakespeare Center Theatre Camps for ages 13-18. Other classes, play readings, and special events happen throughout the year. Mentorships for qualified high school students looking for a hands-on experience at the American Shakespeare Center are also available. 

PERSONAL RENAISSANCE FOR THE LIFE LONG LEARNER

Our daily tours of the playhouse, lectures and discussions before and after the performances, outreach programs, internships, and various special events are all available for the enrichment of our local Community and visitors from out of town.
