EDUCATORS

We can't do our work without you.

Did you know high schools across America license over 75,000 shows each year reaching audiences of 50 million people a year?

 

That's larger than Broadway.

 

And those numbers don't include the many plays and musicals
also licensed by junior high schools and universities.
Some schools even commission new work.

 

The Dramatists Guild can provide theatre
educators resources and tools to become better
leaders in their school or college community.

CONFRONT
CENSORSHIP

The Dramatists Guild created the Dramatists Legal Defense Fund to advocate and to educate, and to provide theatres, theatre artists, teachers and schools with a new resource in defense of the First Amendment and on behalf of a robust public domain.
