Make classic theater come alive for your students!
For over fifty years, students of all ages have enjoyed the thrill of experiencing classic plays, professionally produced by Great Lakes Theater. Some of those students are now teachers themselves, and carry on the tradition of introducing the finest works of world literature to the next generation.
“Our students had limited exposure to Shakespeare, and we had studied the play before attending. Experiencing the live performance gave them a much better understanding of the relationships between the characters, which the simple words on the page do not necessarily convey to the novice reader."
– Michael McNamee, Facing History New Tech High School
“I love when we get to see a show we studied in class. When they understand a line or scene in a new way: that is amazing!”
– Lynn Monaco, Chardon High School
The very essence of education is about introducing yourself to humanity’s greatest achievements, and then finding ways to incorporate those achievements into your own life. Once the door of classic literature is opened to your students, there is no telling who may become the next William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Jane Austin or Agatha Christie.
Let the journey begin.
