A two-week summer workshop for twenty New York City school teachers on four of William Shakespeare's plays.

Theatre for a New Audience seeks support for its Shakespeare Fellows' Project - an intensive professional development program focusing on Shakespeare and consisting of a two-week summer seminar and two one-day weekend workshops in the fall and spring. The Project was developed to serve public and private school teachers in the New York City area. Led by Columbia University professors David Scott Kastan and Julie Crawford, and Lehman College and the Graduate Center CUNY professor Mario Di Gangi, the workshop will provide 20 teachers and two teaching artists with advanced skills to identify and understand the language, themes and context of Shakespearean plays. This year, participants will study two tragedies (Hamlet and King Lear) and compare and contrast them with two romances (The Tempest and Cymbeline). The Theatre successfully implemented the first year of this pilot program in 2006, thanks to support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
