Message from the Education Director

Dear Educator:

This year the Atlanta Shakespeare Company embarks on what promises to be an enlightening and artistically exciting odyssey- Over an 18-month arc, we will be exploring all of Shakespeare’s Comedies in the order we think they were written. As artists and scholars we’re excited about exploring the evolution in comedic style of our house playwright and resident genius, William Shakespeare.

But never fear! You spoke and we listened: we will produce the outstanding Core Curriculum titles that you rely on us to offer each year- Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet and a huge favorite from two seasons ago, The Canterbury Tales. Our student matinee series will continue to help you teach these incredible works of art as well as entertain students and teachers alike. Our Evolution (of Genius) project is starting with the Comedies in the order the latest research tells us is likely so you can also offer your students such seldom seen gems as The Two Gentlemen of Verona or Love's Labour’s Lost, challenging titles like The Merchant of Venice and perennial Tavern favorites like Much Ado About Nothing.
