Education

Theatre is transformative. We believe theatre arts education can help foster the growth of compassionate, creative, and courageous individuals of all ages, and are proud to be able to provide our communities with the opportunity to engage in quality theatre arts camps and classes. Each year approximately 8,500 students from schools across the Bay Area participate in our programs. Though those numbers have changed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still here and still excited to provide new opportunities for theatre exploration.

Daniel Duque-Estrada

Education Coordinator & Teaching Artist

Daniel is thrilled to continue his career as an educator here at MTC, after serving as a teaching artist at The Dallas Theater Center and Trinity Repertory Company in Providence, RI, where he is also a member of the Resident Acting Company. As a professional actor, he has acted at theaters regionally and off-broadway, including WP Theater, Second Stage, The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and Dallas Theater Center. He holds A BA from UC Berkeley and and MFA in acting from Brown University/Trinity Rep.

“The value of arts education, to me, has nothing to do with practicality. it’s never had anything to do with whether or not a person pursues a career as an actor, or a writer, or a painter, whatever it is. The value of engaging yourself in an art is always that moment that sneaks up on you in the process, when you feel a little bit taller, you burn a little brighter, your reach reaches further, and you take up the space around you in a completely different way: the moment you locate the art in yourself. That’s the thing you take out of the classroom and into the world. That is the thing that matters.” - Daniel Duque-Estrada


Euan Ashley

Education Coordinator & Teaching Artist

Euan Ashley (He/Him/His), is excited to be joining the MTC staff as an Educator Coordinator! He is an actor and San Francisco native with a strong belief that the best theatre comes from a place of passion and that arts education is crucial for people of all ages.
