Teaching Artists

The Atlanta Shakespeare Company is committed to offering professional actors, skilled in the performance of Shakespeare, the chance to share their expertise and insight with students and teaching professionals throughout the education system. At ASC, we believe trained, professional artists can make special, sometimes magical, connections with young people that contribute knowledge, motivation, and inspiration to growing students and artists.


We do this to promote our community’s cultural growth through exciting in-school programs and performances.

We create an inclusive, playful environment that challenges students and teachers to fearlessly engage with Shakespeare’s poetry, ideas and passion.

We provide specialized training for our artists in order to ensure the highest quality educational and artistic experiences for students and teachers alike.
