Actors From the London Stage is an international touring theater organization based at the University of Notre Dame. It combines the superb talents of professional actors onstage with rare opportunities for students to work with them in the classroom. The actors visit selected American universities each year to perform and to conduct classes and workshops. The residency is supported by UTSA Friends of Shakespeare and a grant from the Russell Hill Rogers Fund for the Arts.
