CSC Education Program

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is a resident ensemble theatre company bringing Shakespeare and the Classics to life for audiences of all ages.  The CSC Education Program exists to expand the reach of the Company’s mission, invite students to join the conversation about Shakespeare, the classics, and drama, and encourage individuals of all ages to participate in the arts.  A Dater grant helped CSC provide the performances, workshops, classes, and camps that improve students’ comprehension of Shakespeare’s text, appreciation of theatre, attitude, confidence, academic performance, and empathy.

Read these words from a participating student ...
“I moved to Cincinnati about 7 years ago and immediately I didn’t fit in.  I wasn’t like the other kids.  I went to a small school in Edgewood, Kentucky.  That summer I was signed up for a handful of theatre camps.  I ended up dropping out of all of them except Shakespeare camp.  On the first day of camp my entire life changed.  My first class was a chakra class with Miranda McGee.  During the class I was overwhelmed with emotion and began to cry,  Miranda was right there making sure I knew I wasn’t alone anymore.  During that week I met the most amazing people.  People who have never left my side.  The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company and the people who work there became my family.  They never cease to inspire me every single day.  They gave me back the art that I love.  They gave me back my fire.  Most of all, they helped me find myself.  The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company saved my life.  There are no words to describe how thankful I am for all that they have done for me.  I now volunteer weekly at CSC.  I am a Groundling.   I help teach with Groundlings Jr., and of course I will be returning to camp this summer.  One day I hope to join the ensemble and my family on the stage.  Thank you to my family for love and support, to all of you for making this possible, to Jeremy, Sara, and Miranda for always being there, creating a safe environment, and always willing to push me further.  Shakespeare once said “we are such stuff as dreams are made on.”  Thank you to the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company for helping me work towards my dreams everyday.” – Danzita Piper, CSC Groundling
