The Drama League is pleased to announce the first year of our Classical Fellowship for Directors of Color, in partnership with the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. Each summer The Old Globe produces several classical plays on its outdoor stage, and also sponsors a Summer Shakespeare Intensive for talented high school student performers. Our new fellow will spend four months at the Old Globe, assisting the directors of three main-stage classical plays, teaching classes in the Shakespeare Intensive, and directing actors from the Intensive in a production of a Shakespeare play.
Snehal Desai, an MFA graduate of Yale Drama School, will be our first Classical Fellow. We are delighted that he will inaugurate this new program for us!
The Drama League would like to thank the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation for their generosity, and our Diversity Council for their help and support.
