Cincinnati Shakespeare Company presents:
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)
All the Best Bits of the Bard!
What better way to celebrate the completion of the entire Shakespeare canon by Cincinnati Shakespeare Company than by doing it all over again – in one evening! The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) features three actors on a mission: to bring the entirety of Shakespeare’s works to life on the stage in one fell swoop. Gallop along with us as we careen wildly through all the comedies, histories and tragedies using a trunkful of props, wigs, and outrageous costumes – it’s a joyous Shakespeare jambalaya you definitely don’t want to miss.

At many schools, the theatre department has just one faculty member. One person to teach, plan, grade, build, design, and direct. Long hours, tight budgets, and limited access to colleagues can make the workload feel overwhelming.
The Educational Theatre Association’s National Conference gives theatre educators the opportunity to network with hundreds of other theatre professionals while also growing as a theatre professional and as an educator. Rigorous professional development programming and engaging keynote addresses from leaders in the field inspire, strengthen, and motivate participants to return to their programs with renewed passion and energy for the important work they do.
The 2014 theme: Theatre at the Core
Theatre is a recognized core subject that integrates a wide range of knowledge and teaches the most valued twenty-first century skills of education—creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication. But in too many schools the opportunity for students to experience the art has diminished. To ensure that theatre is part of education reform, we need trained teachers like you who understand that “theatre at the core” means it is essential to every child’s education.

I want to come to the 2014 National Conference. How can I demonstrate the benefits to my administration?
The 2014 EdTA National Conference is a great place to network with other theatre educators and receive important professional development, but sometimes it can be hard to express that to a school administration. EdTA is here to help! Check out our justification toolkit. It provides five easy steps to help make the case that professional development benefits not only educators, but each and every one of their students as well! Don’t forget to download the encouragement letter from EdTA Executive Director Julie Woffington.
