Stratford Festival Announces Langham Workshop Directors

The Stratford Festival welcomes six directors to the 2013 Michael Langham Workshop for Classical Direction: Kevin Bennett, Mitchell Cushman, Andrea Donaldson, Kevin Hammond, Birgit Schreyer Duarte and Ken Schwartz.

“This is a dynamic and very talented group of directors,” says Artistic Director Antoni Cimolino. “They come from across Canada and have widely different experiences within the theatre but are united in their love for and dedication to staging the classics. We are very excited to welcome them to the Festival.

“Under the direction of accomplished director and teacher David Latham, we have focused the program to provide a more comprehensive and deeper learning experience with Shakespeare and the classics.”

The workshop, launched in 2010 and named for the Festival’s second Artistic Director, the late Michael Langham, is designed for directors in mid-career who have experience working with the classics but not at a theatre of the complexity and scope of the Festival.

Participants are given classes in text, voice, movement and other disciplines. Working with director-mentors, they serve as assistant directors during the season and are given the opportunity to present a classical piece of their own choosing to an invited audience.

The Michael Langham Workshop for Classical Direction is sponsored by RBC and funded by Heritage Canada.
