CANCELLED: School of Theater 2021 

We have made the difficult decision, to insure the safety of all involved, to cancel Spring School of Theater 2021 classes.

While we are saddened not to be able to share the joy of theater with our students this spring, we consider health and safety the immediate, and highest priority.

We are focusing our energy on making a plan for our 2021 Summer Camps. Dates are TBA, so stayed tuned!

We look forward to resuming our educational programming as soon as we can insure the safety of students and teachers. In the meantime, we are grateful for your patience, understanding, loyalty, and continued support.

For questions please email Director of Education, Veronica Von Tobel at veronica@idahoshakespeare.org.

Thank you for your support and interest. We hope to sing, dance, laugh, and act with your students soon!

Ever thanks,
Dir. Of Education Veronica Von Tobel & ISF School of Theater Teaching Staff

School of Theater Location

The office and classrooms of the Idaho Shakespeare Festival is at the corner of 9th and Fulton and is housed in the same building as Boise Contemporary Theater. There is parking to be found around the area and there are two pay lots directly across the street. Be careful about the No Parking signs, they are enforced. Do not park in the Esther Simplot Performing Arts Complex lots – those are private parking. You’ll see the signs.

There’s a big porch at Boise Contemporary Theater and students come in the big silver front doors, through the Lobby area and downstairs to their classes Classrooms A, B, and C). The Instructorst will be there waiting for their students to arrive.

As a reminder, we do not have pre or post class child care – please be prompt in picking up your student. You can come into the Lobby of the Boise Contemporary Theater to wait for your child or pick them up outside. The teachers will not allow any student to leave the theater porch area until you arrive.

Parent Information

Arrival and Departure

The teachers will be waiting for your student in the classrooms downstairs. It is very important that you pick up your student ON TIME. We are sorry but we do not have child care available for after class times.

Water & Snacks

Please send a water bottle with your student. Acting is thirsty work! If your child needs to have a snack, feel free to send something small and easy for him or her to handle.

Clothing

Short skirts, bare middles, tight clothing — no fun! If the student is afraid of something showing, all that creativity will go right out the window. Please have your student wear loose, easy-going clothing! It’s time to play and have fun!

Observing

We have found that students participate more fully and are more focused when loved ones are not present. If you would like, you may stay for the first 20 minutes of their first class, but if you stay you will have to play! We will take good care of your children and you are invited to see all the wonderful work they’ve done at their final performance. If there are special circumstances please contact our education manager, veronica@idahoshakespeare.org.

Discipline

It’s all about play and we want all our students to have lots of fun and enjoy the creative experience! So if a student becomes disruptive instead of joining in — we just use the “time out” method and invite the student to rejoin the group when they’re ready. However, if behavior becomes an issue, we’ll contact you to help us.
