Michigan Teachers Weekend

Work with Stratford's Education staff and Festival artists on bringing Shakespeare's text to life. Gain pedagogical strategies for your own classroom. The weekend, from Saturday, May 19, to Sunday, May 20, will help you:

  • Develop active teaching strategies for your classroom through the Common Core Standards
  • Work with Festival artists
  • Attend a performance of The Tempest


Michigan Residency

We’re bringing Stratford to you! Beginning in late October until November, professional actors and Stratford Festival Education staff tie Common Core Standards to the study of Shakespeare. This trip through the state of Michigan provides the Stratford Education experience to our American friends.

The Residency aims to:
  • introduce students to Shakespeare in a dynamic, engaging way;
  • support teachers in the drama-based teaching of Shakespeare’s plays; and
  • build awareness in Michigan of the world-class theatre that’s just a short drive away

If you’d like to have the Michigan Residency visit your school, please call 1.800.561.1233, extension 2450, or send us an email

Cost: $99 US ($124 CDN) plus tax; Registration includes your lunch on May 19 and one ticket to see The Tempest
