Summer Shakespeare

by:  Lynn Johnson, Associate Director of Education at 09/09/2009

Hello, this is Lynne Johnson, Associate Director of Education at the Huntington Theatre Company sharing a fabulous summer experience with you from the Education Department.

This past summer the education department had the pleasure of producing our fourth Shakespearean production with Codman Academy Public Charter School during the month of July. Twelfth Night was our play of choice, set in modern day Martha’s Vineyard. It proved to be a treat for all of us involved on so many different levels.

New to the Summer Theatre Institute team was the addition of Meg Wieder, Education Manager, who served as Production Stage Manager, which really helped to round out the team needed to produce this wonderful production. In addition, the Huntington’s Production Department went above and beyond to ensure that the students were working on a larger and more detailed set than we’ve been able to achieve in past summers.

As Director of the Twelfth Night, I felt that in all of my years of directing high school students, this summer was an eye opening and particularly moving experience to be working with these students. Meg and I were blessed with a strong, talented group of focused and engaged students who put their very best work into this production.

From day one to strike, it was truly a wonderful collaboration and proves that the work we do with Codman Academy has paid off for each and every student who has been involved. And even though we were their teachers, Meg and I felt we were also students, receiving an education from our cast, which went above and beyond what we ever expected.
