In partnership with the Public Theater

The Academy for Teachers is thrilled to announce that our partner, the Public Theater, has provided us with tickets to Hamlet, this summer’s Shakespeare in the Park production in Central Park. The evening will begin with a picnic on the shores of Turtle Pond. Then Oskar Eustis, the Artistic Director of the Public Theater, will give a private talk to Fellows about the production, followed by the show itself. A night to remember!
