Add a Little "Class" at the Festival


This year, add a little “class” to your life at the Utah Shakespeare Festival—class, as in one of many classes being offered by the Festival Education Department as part of the 2021 season. Registering is as easy as visiting the Festival website at www.bard.org and clicking on the Camps and Classes link under Education.

Just imagine watching a play with other students and then being coached by some of the actors you saw on stage, or learning technical skills to help you as a teacher or community theatre volunteer. Or imagine attending a play or two (or five or six) and receiving Southern Utah University credit by also attending orientations and seminars and providing feedback.

“We are thrilled to finally meet again after the 2020 season was canceled,” said Michael Bahr, Festival education director.  “These popular courses are known for the daily interaction and instruction students receive from theatre professionals. I know the actors, technicians, and instructors will all treasure the opportunity to meet with students once again face-to-face.”

Classes range from Arts Administration for the Theatre Classroom to Actor Training, from Theater Methods for the Classroom to Tech Camp, from Teaching Shakespeare to Tech for Teachers. All include Southern Utah University credit; many include tickets to plays; and a few include dormitory housing and meals.

Scholarships are available for many of the classes. If you are interested in applying, please email education@bard.org.

“We are so excited for the return of these classes,” said Bahr, adding that numerous protocols have been developed to ensure that participants are safe in this era of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“These classes are life-changing,” said Bahr. “We are excited to see you again this summer.”
