Bringing Shakespearian Education to all of Los Angeles
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.

Since the School Days program launched in 1979, Theatricum has been honored to collaborate with hundreds of truly gifted, inspirational teachers. Both LAUSD and private school teachers and their administrators have embraced the work we do and have come to share our passion for exposing young people to language, art and the humanities in a beautiful outdoor sanctuary for the arts. We are proud of our partnerships with Los Angeles teachers and educators, and make it a priority to give back to them as much as we can.
