Our Philosophy

Since its founding in 1973, education has been central to the mission of Theatricum Botanicum. The value and importance of passing on a love of community, language, music, theatre, and art to the next generation is at the organization’s core.
The Academy of the Classics serves this mission by providing lifelong learning opportunities to students of ALL ages through private classes that inspire, include, and engage kids, teens, and adults. These classes, workshops, and camps seek to empower students with confidence; to provide them opportunities to practice collaboration, creative and critical thinking in a positive, nurturing environment; and to introduce them to Shakespeare and great moments in American history with the goal of inspiring a lifelong relationship with language, history, and art.

Thank you for your interest in our programs! We hope you, or your child, or BOTH! will join us in a class, at a play, or just for a visit to our unique and beautiful grounds.

Warmest regards,
Elizabeth Tobias
Education Director/Grants Director
