THE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
The Oklahoma Shakespearean Festival was founded on the premise that it would serve as a training ground for future theatre artisans. Part of that training is making well-rounded performers as well as teachers of the craft to ensure the continuation of the cycle.
Southeastern Oklahoma State University students who are upperclassmen are given the opportunity to gain experience in the art of teaching. The student is under the direct supervision of a certified, experienced instructor with OSF’s After School Program, learning invaluable skills in curriculum development, classroom management, technique and terminology. After the student has observed for one year, they are eligible to teach solo the next.
