Educate through a range of programs, including programs and tours for K – 12 children and teachers, ongoing adult education, interpretive programming, affiliations with universities and cultural organizations, as well as residencies and training opportunities for actors;
Illuminate human nature and our rich cultural heritage through a repertory that includes the plays of William Shakespeare, the richest and most complex in the English language, together with other works from a variety of dramatic periods and genres; and
