About The Huntington Education Department

One of the most extensive and admired programs in the country, the Huntington’s Education Department serves more than 30,000 students, teachers, and community organizations each year with student matinees, state-wide Poetry Out Loud, and the August Wilson Monologue Competition.


Our Statement of Purpose

“The Huntington Theatre Company’s Education Department extends the theatre’s impact by providing theatrical experiences that are grounded in authenticity, inclusiveness, and professionalism, and that reflect the diversity of its communities. Drawing on the expertise of master educators, professionals, and artists, both in-residence and from the extended Huntington family, the Department creates lifelong learning opportunities for audience members and future artists in the field by removing both real and perceived social, financial, and physical barriers to participation.”



Our collaborators include Boston Public Schools, Codman Academy Charter Public School, YMCA, National Endowment for the Arts, the Mass Cultural Council, and many community organizations.



The Huntington Theatre Company has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the President’s Council on the Arts and Humanities, Massachusetts House of Representatives and Senate, the Bay State Council of the Blind, and City of Boston’s City Council. In 2009, Codman Academy was awarded the Commonwealth Award for our collaboration.
