About the Shakespeare Theatre Company

The mission of the Shakespeare Theatre Company is to present classic theatre of scope and size in an imaginative, skillful and accessible American style that honors the playwrights' language and intentions while viewing their work through a 21st-century lens.

The Shakespeare Theatre Company endeavors to be an important resource to an expanded national and international community--as the nation's premier destination for classic theatre, as a training ground for the next generation of theatre artists and as a model provider of high-quality educational content for students and scholars.

About STC Education

The central mission of the Shakespeare Theatre Company Education department is to deepen understanding of, appreciation for and connection to classic theatre in diverse learners of all ages through accessible programs that celebrate multiple perspectives. We seek to fulfill this mission through establishing a myriad of innovative avenues to experience the classics, strengthening our collaborations with schools locally and nationally, engaging in scholarly dialogue with community and audience members. We seek to empower learners to think critically, question freely, share openly and engage in an ongoing exploration of Shakespeare.

From Artistic Director Michael Kahn:

Education is an important element of any professional theatre, but for a classical theatre like Shakespeare Theatre Company, it is vital. We aim to lead as the nation's premier destination for classical theatre, providing a training ground for the next generation of theatre artists and high-quality educational content for audiences, students and scholars. It is our responsibility to share our passion for Shakespeare with the next generation and the larger community. As the Artistic Director of the Shakespeare Theatre Company, it is a mission I take very seriously.

I believe in an ongoing study and practice of Shakespeare and his work. Exploring the classics is not only rigorous and stimulating – it also leads us closer to universal truths. When we go to the theatre, we engage with other human beings. We are part of a community where we are asked to be compassionate: to laugh with or grieve for others, and to understand people, lives and cultures different from our own.

With our range of Education programs, we strive to support and expand the work on our stages in many different environments. We endeavor to foster passion for the arts and to deepen the connection to classical theatre in learners of all ages and backgrounds. And by sharing its magic, we work to secure the future of classical theatre for generations to come.

-Michael Kahn
