About Shakespeare Globe Centre-USA Inc.

Shakespeare Globe Centre-USA Inc. (SGC USA) works to support and develop the Globe in London and its numerous activities across the USA. Founded by American actor Sam Wanamaker in 1974, SGC USA was a cornerstone in his quest to reconstruct the Globe Theatre and the transatlantic links remain to this day.

Each year, the Globe’s artistic presence in the USA varies; from screenings across the country of productions filmed on the Globe’s stage, to small scale tours, to the Broadway transfer of Richard III and Twelfth Night starring Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry. 2017 will see a welcome return of the Globe to Broadway with the transfer of another award winning production at the end of the year. 

SGC USA also helps support the Globe’s vital education activity. Every year we welcome thousands of US students from high schools and universities to our London home through a range of bespoke education programmes. Our flagship learning programme is Rutgers Conservatory at Shakespeare’s Globe, offering students intensive classical study. Alongside this work, the Globe is working in collaboration with University of California Davis, to establish a groundbreaking education program that will support a large number of US teachers in practical approaches to teaching Shakespeare. The academy for teachers and educators combines lessons in California with courses taught in London.
