Students Study Drama at Highest Rated Theater Program in NY
Founded by Jeffrey Horowitz in 1979, Theater for a New Audience is a venerable, non-profit classical theatre program. For more than 20 years, it has produced acclaimed, imaginative productions of Shakespeare and the classics and offered major arts education programs. The organization offers the largest programs in the New York City public schools for introducing Shakespeare and other classics. Along with staff development, workshops and artist residencies, students see morning matinee performances of shows seen by regular audiences.
The company just announced a new scholarship program for high school seniors underwritten by the Richard and Mica Hadar Foundation.
Since 1984, the programs have introduced Shakespeare and classic drama to nearly 100,000 students ages 9 through 18 in New York City public schools city-wide. The programs promote literacy, teach research and analysis skills, and build teacher capacity. Middle school students can enjoy a 12 week program learning about Shakespeare and other great playwrights.
Recently, Zoe Caldwell addressed a group at a launch of the new scholarship program. If ever words could evoke powerful emotions, Ms. Caldwell unleashed that flood with her superb monologue.
