ASC Education—on your schedulE
Join the Education Team as we take the practices of the rehearsal room and introduce them to you in our workshops. We’ll help them break Shakespeare’s text into pieces and then put them back together to discover character, narrative, and compelling moments. While you knit the pieces together, gain ownership of Shakespeare and know that Shakespeare is for now.
ASC Education is committed to meet the needs of educators and students—of all ages. We know that time is precious and schedules are ever-changing in this new, virtual world. So we’re making our Education programming available to you—on your schedule.

Title-Centered SHXCademies explore a specific Shakespeare title in detail.
Topic-Centered SHXCademies explore a theme using text from throughout Shakespeare’s Canon.
