Illumination Education Program
Classroom Teacher Training Program
As part of our core partner residency program, Lantern Theater Company is a Pennsylvania-approved Act 48 Continuing Professional Education Provider. In partnership with the School District of Philadelphia, we offer workshops for classroom teachers on a variety of theatrical topics, including acting, directing, Shakespeare, coaching inexperienced actors, and curriculum design. While these workshops are primarily focused on training the classroom teachers at our core partner schools, interested classroom teachers from the Philadelphia area are welcome to attend, provided there is sufficient room in the workshop.
FREE Theater Teacher Master Classes
Our next Master Class is scheduled for this winter – details will be announced soon.
Are you interested in free training and experience as a professional teaching artist? Since 2006, the Lantern has been partnering with Philadelphia ASAP/After School Activities Partnerships to provide training to emerging/mid-career teaching artists through one-day master classes led by the best and brightest of Philadelphia's teaching artist community.
Gain Experience as a Teaching Artist
In exchange for this valuable opportunity, we ask for a short-term commitment to help Philadelphia's students while gaining valuable on-the-job experience that will help advance your career as a local teaching artist.
This Master Class is also available to non-ASAP volunteer participants, subject to availability.
