Austin Shakespeare’s ongoing “Shakespeare Aloud” reading group and “Artist’s Way” sessions invite new participates weekly. Austin Shakespeare’s education program 20/20 sends professional actors into the schools to encourage love of language.  Austin Shakespeare is a proud member of the Austin Creative Alliance.
