The Theatre Program nurtures students through the process of artistic self-expression using a collaborative approach and providing global context. Our faculty includes a diverse forum of experts who bring their knowledge and talents to a lively educational experience.
The Classical Acting Program features an extraordinary collaboration between two leading D.C. institutions: The Shakespeare Theatre Company brings to the partnership world-class artists/teachers, a comprehensive training program and a distinguished reputation as a nationally and internationally recognized leader in classical repertory. GW brings its resources and reputation as a major research university, with strong links to the Folger Shakespeare Library and the Library of Congress, as well as shared faculty and space resources. The one-year intensive graduate program focuses on the specific craft of acting Shakespeare and other classical texts.
