For summer 2023, TDF is offering a virtual Directing Plays and Musicals in the School and Classroom course through the NYC Department of Education's After School Professional Development Program (ASPDP). NYC public school teachers can earn professional credits along the way (P-credits and CTLE hours), and all participants receive a complimentary one-year membership to TDF. Best of all, teachers from anywhere can enroll because it's all online!
