Illumination Education Program
Filmed Plays from the Lantern Archives:
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Charles McMahon
This spring, we are offering teachers the opportunity to stream filmed versions of select Shakespeare plays from the Lantern Theater Company production archives – at no cost to you or to your school.
We know this school year is unique, and we want to support you and your students while we are still unable to come together in person. Our production of The Tempest was professionally filmed with a live theater audience in April 2018, and is best enjoyed by grades 8 and up. Our company of professional actors brings Shakespeare's stories vividly to life, making this curricular material exciting and engaging for students. We invite you and your students to participate in this unique opportunity to support your classwork with the energy and artistry of our unrivaled Shakespeare productions.
If you have any questions, please contact M. Craig Getting, Education Director, at email@example.com or 215.829.9002 x104. To request access to the filmed production for your classroom, please complete this access request form.
