Education

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.

Theatricum’s Education Programs instill values of inclusion, community, collaboration, and creativity. They reinforce the importance of poetic language, music, theatre, and art for the development of the next generation. Through the Academy of the Classics’ Youth, Teen, and Adult Classes, School Days Field Trip, Classroom Enrichment, and Internship Programs, Theatricum serves this mission by providing lifelong learning opportunities to students of all ages through diverse programs that inspire, include, and engage. These classes, workshops, field trips, assemblies, residencies, professional development opportunities, and camps empower students with confidence; provide them opportunities to practice collaboration, creative and critical thinking in a positive, nurturing environment; and to introduce them to Shakespeare heightened language, kinesthetic theatre techniques, great figures and moments in American History, and their own powerful voices all with the goal of inspiring a lifelong relationship with language, history, and art.

We have had to make the difficult decision to cancel all in-person programming. While it deeply saddens us that are not be able to welcome students of all ages under our Oaks, we have put together an energetic and eclectic online potpourri of classes for all ages. We hope you will find a class or two to inspire, engage, and bring joy to you, your children, or your entire household. All classes are available for immediate enrollment. We hope to see you in whatever way we can until we can see you in person again. Stay healthy and safe.
