We believe that learning is a lifelong process.
Our Antaeus Academy trains the next generation of professional theatre artists, serving more than 220 talented student actors annually. Our classes give actors the opportunity to explore complex classical texts moderated by Los Angeles’ most highly respected professionals.
Our Arts Education programming, which has been in existence since 2009, provides learning opportunities to students, educators and audiences by connecting the essentially human elements in classical texts to contemporary issues and ideas. Our programs ensure direct, focused contact within communities, and curriculum is developed with specific constituents in mind.
Our flagship education program, the Antaeus Odyssey Artists’ Workshop, is a creative writing and theatre residency for at-risk youth and young adults. This program uses the plays of William Shakespeare to teach the structural elements of non-fiction writing and theatre performance.
Our Community Outreach programs include teaching artists visits, post-show discussions, and our Classics forums. These programs are designed for school, senior, and affinity groups attending one of our productions that want a deeper understanding of the material.
