Oratory Residency and Festival Application Form

Ford’s Oratory Residency and Festival is our local program bringing the power of public speaking into the classroom. Educators in partnership with a Ford’s Theatre teaching artist work with their classrooms to study historical speeches over five in-person residency visits to learn public speaking and performance skills. The program culminates with a performance on the Ford’s Theatre stage in early February 2024. Open to 3rd – 8th grade classrooms.
