A two-week summer workshop for forty New York City classroom teachers (grades 5-12) and four teaching artists, with two follow-up weekend sessions, on Shakespeare's language and dramatic art through study of the theme of love in three plays by the Bard of Stratford-upon-Avon.

Theatre for a New Audience seeks support for its Shakespeare Fellows' Project - an intensive 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. Guided by Colmubia University professor David Scott Kastan, the program will be led by Julie Crawford (Columbia University), Mario DiGangi (Lehman College/CUNY Graduate Center), William Fisher (Lehman College/CUNY Graduate Center) and Kim Hill (Barnard College). This year the workshop will expand to provide 40 teachers and four teaching artists with advanced skills to identify and understand the language, themes and context of Shakespeare's plays. This year, participants will study three plays ("Romeo and Juliet" "A Midsummer Night's Dream" "Antony and Cleopatra") and compare and constrast how each work treats its central theme of love.
