Education

Lakeside Shakespeare Theatre’s Education Workshops aim to teach creativity and cooperation by exposing students to different ways to utilize their language, bodies and imaginations. Over the course of each three-day workshop led by LST actors, students will learn the basics of understanding stage terminology, speaking in heightened language, creating characters and performing safe stage combat — as well as have fun by playing theatre games and interacting with other students. On the final day of class, the students will perform on the Lakeside Shakespeare Theatre stage in front of an audience before one of our shows.

Intern Program

Click here to email Danny TaylorLST’s Education Director, to find out more about our intern program.


Both workshops and performances will be held at LST’s performance space on Tank Hill, so please pack sunscreen and bug spray.  We will provide water from a 5 gallon jug, so please be sure your child also has a water bottle. We do not provide snacks, however breaks will be taken for students to eat their own packed snacks.

In order to best serve our students in terms of interests and abilities, we offer classes that are broken up by age range. If you have siblings who would prefer to be together, but fall under two age brackets — please email us and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

These free workshops are made possible by your generous contributions and by a grant from The Robert and Patricia Colby Foundation.
