We define a Seattle Shakespeare Company residency as three or more class sessions of active, customized curriculum at your school. Professional teaching artists plan with the teacher to tailor each residency to fit the needs and objectives of the classroom.
Residencies are designed to inject vibrant, active exercises into lessons that unlock the text, themes, and actions of a Shakespeare play.
Since every residency is customized, they can vary greatly.
“I thought Shakespeare was kind of simple and boring, but when we did the activities, I actually enjoyed learning more about Shakespeare and still want to learn more.”
Pricing for all of our residencies are $100 per teaching artist per hour (one teaching artist can teach up to 30 students). Financial aid is available for qualifying schools.
