We are happy to host Educators Day in person this year as the New Swan Shakespeare Theater returns this summer for its 11th season. Please join us on campus for an afternoon of study of Shakespeare's "As You Like It," followed by an acting demonstration with New Swan actors and director Beth Lopes. Throughout the day, there will be opportunities to share teaching strategies with fellow teachers. To conclude our time together, we will share a meal and walk over to the New Swan Shakespeare Theater to view the 8:00pm performance of “As You Like It." One to two free tickets are included with your registration.

Educators Day is open to current teachers, retired teachers, student teachers, and the teacher-curious. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP by completing this form.
