Thank You Leon County School Board

What an incredible year it has been for the Southern Shakespeare Company already!

With the loss of state funds previously used to help support our education outreach in our Leon County schools, there was tremendous uncertainty about the ability for Southern Shakespeare to continue to provide our free workshops, intensives, productions, and bring Shakespeare Man and Sonnet Man to our Leon County School students.

However, the Leon County School Board voted unanimously to continue our K-12 program in the Leon County Schools and we could not wait another moment to say THANK YOU to the Superintendent and School Board for continuing to support our education programs.

We are so appreciative of the opportunities Southern Shakespeare has enjoyed in partnering with the Leon County School Board and we are proud to be marching together into a bright new year!

The education programming we provide to our Leon County School students, in the classroom and through our after-school programs, is another piece of our year-round educational programming and mission which includes training young artists through our junior acting troupe (The Bardlings) and apprenticeship opportunities through our Mainstage Company.

We are so grateful for the Leon County School Board and community support
and can’t wait to get the new year started!
