In the few signatures that have survived, Shakespeare spelled his name “Willm Shaksp,” “William Shakespe,” and “Wm Shakspe,” – but never “William Shakespeare.”

Current Teaching Artists

Since 1990, Kentucky Shakespeare has made the works of Shakespeare accessible for more than a million kindergarten through twelfth grade students in all 120 counties of Kentucky as well as parts of Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, South Carolina and West Virginia. We are thrilled to continue our tradition of providing professional and educational programs to students of all ages. Of course, none of this would be possible be possible without our very talented Teaching Artists!

Chelsea Skalski :

Living History, Bard Buddies, Faerie Tales, Residencies

Chelsea Skalski is happy to be returning to Kentucky Shakespeare for the fall season. She had a wonderful experience working with the company’s summer camps and in her portrayal of Portia in the company’s Spring Tour of Julius Caesar. Other notable roles include Lady MacDuff in MacBeth with Savage Rose Classical Theatre and Juliet in Living Dead in Denmark with The Alley Theater.  She got her degree from Miami University (in Ohio, not Florida – so no, she did not spend her free time on the beach).  She now shares her 30 sq ft. apartment with her dog Copper and loves people watching.

Tony Milder :

Two-Person Hamlet, Bard Buddies, Faerie Tales, Inspecting Shakespeare, Residencies

Tony is happy to be returning to Kentucky Shakespeare after an intense summer with Tibbits Opera House (where he played over twenty characters in five different shows). His other regional credits include The Guthrie Theatre, The Theatre at Monmouth, The National Theatre for Children, ColliDe Theatrical Dance Company, and Cardinal Theatricals. A Junior Olympic gold medal tumbler and amateur knitter, Tony has a wide array of interests – including the sound of his own voice, brassy divas, sushi, turning pages, and making himself cry. He got his degree (and perfected his tan) at Concordia College in Moorhead.
