Just for Teachers
The Shaw Festival connects young minds with professional theatre in exciting and inspiring ways. Teachers and students with a passion for theatre will be wowed with access to world-class facilities, artists, and technicians. Our theatre programs have something for everyone – from teachers looking for professional development opportunities to school groups looking for enrichment activities, and for every young person that has ever dreamed of participating in the world of live theatre.
We have a program for YOU.
Fridays, May 2 and October 24
The Shaw is bursting with exciting and inspiring ways to connect professional theatre artists with professional educators. Join other teachers for a day of active sessions to help develop creative, critical, and practical skills in all aspects of your theatre practice.
Join us for an exciting and engaging day of inspiring workshops, delicious food, and — of course! — wine.
