Directors in Residence

The Nashville Shakespeare Festival partners with Nashville area high schools to provide professional directors for school productions of Shakespeare’s plays.  This gives students and faculty the invaluable opportunity to work directly with a practicing theatre artist on all aspects of a full production.  Pricing is variable upon the size of the project.
