he ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY (RSC) is one of the world's bestknown theater companies. Every year the Company plays to over 500,000 theatergoers at performances staged across the world.
The RSC plays throughout the year at its home in StratforduponAvon, the town where Shakespeare was born and died. The Company also performs regularly in London and at an annual RSC residency in NewcastleuponTyne. In addition, the Company tours throughout the UK and internationally, including residencies with universities and performing centers in the US.
The Company's mission is to keep in touch with Shakespeare as a contemporary and to keep modern audiences, artists, and writers in touch with Shakespeare. The Company's repertoire also includes other Renaissance dramatists and the work of international and contemporary writers. The aim is to give as many people from all walks of life as possible a richer and fuller understanding of theater. Through
events, education, and outreach programs, the RSC continually strives to engage people with the experience of live performance.
The RSC today is still at heart an ensemble company. Everyone in the Company--from directors, actors, and writers to production, administrative, technical, and workshop staff--all collaborate in the RSC's distinctive and unmistakable approach to theater.
MICHAEL BOYD was appointed as the RSC's Artistic Director in July 2002 and took up the position in April 2003. His mission for the Company was to work as an ensemble in a spirit of deep inquiry, to connect people with Shakespeare, and to reengage with the contemporary world and contemporary theater works. Since then, the Company has gone from strength to strength.
Under his leadership, the RSC staged the Complete Works Festival in 2006, performing all of Shakespeare's 37 plays, long poems, and sonnets with 30 visiting companies from across the world.
As a Director, he has worked with an ensemble of 34 actors over two and a half years to stage The Histories. The productions opened in StratforduponAvon at The Courtyard Theatre in 2007 and transferred to The Roundhouse in London in spring 2008, playing to enormous critical acclaim.
At the same time, the Company has embarked on a major transformation of its StratforduponAvon home. The new Royal Shakespeare Theatre will bring actors and audiences closer together in a new thrust stage auditorium, due for completion in 2010.
From 1996, Mr. Boyd was as an Associate Director of the RSC, working alongside Michael Attenborough, Katie Mitchell, Gregory Doran, and Steven Pimlott. In 2001 he won the Olivier Award for "Best Director" for his productions of Henry VI, Parts I, II, and III and Richard III, part of the RSC's This England: The Histories season. These plays were coproduced with UMS and the University of Michigan.
Mr. Boyd's work for the RSC includes Richard II, Henry IV, Parts I and II, Henry V (as part of The Histories) (200708); Henry VI, Parts I, II, and III and Richard III for the Complete Works Festival (200607); Twelfth Night (2005); Hamlet (2004), The Tempest (2002), Henry VI, Parts I, II, and III, Richard III, and Romeo and Juliet (200001); A Midsummer Night's Dream (1999); Troilus and

How befitting that, at a time when our economic, political, and social assumptions are undergoing seismic shifts, we turn to the voice of a playwright who lived when the order of the Western world was being turned on its head. Shakespeare's world, as is ours, was grappling with emerging assumptions about class, status, power, beliefs, and knowledge that challenged its understanding of the familiar.
Most appropriate, then, that we honor distinguished artists and educators who have dedicated their life's work to illuminating Shakespeare's rendering of these challenges. Through the extraordinary talents of the Royal Shakespeare Company, RSC Artistic Director Michael Boyd, and UM Professor of English Ralph Williams, we gain insight not only into Shakespeare's world, but ours as well.
As cochairs of the 2009 Ford Honors Gala, we are most honored to be part of UMS's efforts to promote, through the performing arts, education programs for schoolchildren and educators in southeastern Michigan and audience members of all ages. We extend a heartfelt thank you for your generous support of the UMS Education Programs.
It has been our privilege to work with an outstanding group of UMS Advisory Committee members and a dedicated UMS staff. Together we present you this delightful evening. Enjoy!

Over the course of the three residencies, Ralph Williams led and participated in over 30 events, giving context and insight on the plays to nearly 9,500 students and members of the public.
Since the beginning of his relationship with the RSC in 2000, Professor Williams has traveled to England 15 times for RSC business.
Professor Williams prepared and presented over 60 rubrics to his students throughout the three residencies.
Striving to provide worldclass educational events and cultural exchange to the broadest definition of the community, the UMS Education and Audience Development Program continues to grow in its 14th season as a formal department at UMS. Through a wide variety of partnerships and collaborations with individuals and community organizations, UMS maintains its commitment to audiences through activities designed for different ages, nationalities, and learning styles. UMS recognizes that every single person has a unique relationship to the arts, and our role is to enhance that connection through dialogue and participation. The UMS Education and Audience Development Program has been awarded the "Best Practice" award by both ArtServe Michigan and the Dana Foundation.
With the largest Youth Performance series in Michigan as one of its core components, UMS's unique Youth Education Program is developed in partnership with the Ann Arbor Public Schools and the Washtenaw Intermediate School District. The program provides worldclass artistic experiences and personal professional development to students, young adults, teachers, and families. The UMSAAPS WISD partnership was formalized in 1997 as part of the Kennedy Center Partners in Education program.
K12 Youth Performance Series
This season, UMS offers nine speciallydesigned intheater performances for students featuring eight different artists. With six youth performances left in the 0809 season, our performance venues are 67 full as of December 2008. Accounting for current ticket requests, the program is positioned to reach nearly 12,000 students, a 25 increase over last season. At the halfway point in our season, UMS Youth Education has already engaged new teachers and school districts, and continues its work to expand the reach of this program.
UMS Teacher Workshop Series
UMS is part of the Kennedy Center Partners in Education Program, offering educators meaningful professional development opportunities. Work?shops, cultural immersions, and book clubs bring
the best in local and national arts education to our community, through presentations by Kennedy Center teaching artists, UMS performing artists, and local arts and culture experts. This series focuses on arts integration, giving teachers techniques for incorporating the arts into everyday classroom instruction. In the first half of the 0809 season, the series featured book clubs discussing different cultural themes, workshops on theatrical techniques for writing instruction, and a daylong immersion on Arab Detroit, providing tools for teachers to immediately utilize in their classroom. Looking forward to Winter 2009, UMS will immerse teachers in Jewish culture and provide workshops on hiphop and Spanish language children's songs. As with our Youth Performance Series, UMS is on track to increase the total number of teachers participating in our professional development opportunities this season.
UMS Curriculum Packets
UMS creates teacher curriculum packets, CDs, and DVDs for all schools participating in this diverse program. The guides have garnered national attention and are used throughout the performing arts industry to connect the classroom and performance experience.
UMS K12 School Enrichment
UMS has continued its efforts in schools, providing additional handson support to the classroom teacher. Trained arts professionals visit schools to provide context, workshops, and a firsthand perspective to supplement the other youth
education programs. Over the course of this year, UMS will facilitate a variety of studentartist interactions, affecting nearly 500 students.
Breakin' Curfew 2009
In the sixth annual Breakin' Curfew, UMS celebrates the artistic vision and talent of the local teen community. Through a partnership with the Neutral Zone, Ann Arbor's teen center, Breakin' Curfew allows over 20 teen curators and 150 local teens to create, perform, produce, and market a professional performance at the Power Center for the Performing Arts. Breakin' Curfew is unique to the city of Ann Arbor and is an exciting showcase for emerging teen talent. This season's Breakin1 Curfew is on Friday, May 8, 2009 at the Power Center.

Artists presented by UMS are frequently working both on and offstage to be actively engaged in the community. UMS facilitated and managed many major residencies in Fall 2008, including work

Situated on Detroit's northwest side, Paul Robeson Academy (a Detroit Public School) pairs high academic standards in the classroom with a remarkable commitment to developing their students' comfort with difference and diversity outside of the classroom. This includes experiencing international arts and culture at UMS Youth Performances, where Robeson students are distinguished by model behavior and rapt engagement with the show. These trips to nearly every youth performance-yes, every performance--represent a tremendous effort: a school challenging itself to develop the "whole child" by being resourceful, by being creative, and by being exemplary educators. Their work is especially noteworthy at a time when arts education programs across the country are facing budget cuts or outright elimination. Despite external challenges, Paul Robeson Academy continues to invest in the breadth and depth of educational opportunities for its students, and UMS congratulates and supports their efforts!
The UMS Educator and School of the Year Awards are sponsored by DTE Energy Foundation.
The Educator and School of the Year Awards are designed by potter and visual artist Sara Frank, UMS Advisory Committee member.
Community High School (retired)
Honoring Mike Grace is easy; quantifying his impact is nearly impossible. Retiring from Community High School in 2008, Mike tirelessly and uniquely wove jazz into the fabric of the greater Ann Arbor area. He created a tapestry of music that thrived in neighborhood garages, on concert stages, at community events, and most importantly and indelibly, in the lives of youth. His students' performances were passionate outlets of expression informed by Mike's regular lessons on pursuing excellence in life (disguised as afterschool jazz rehearsals). Mike was also a tireless supporter of UMS programs, bringing his students to many UMS Youth Performances, encouraging artist classroom visits whenever possible, and making his Community High jazz ensembles available to participate in many Ford Honors Programs overthe years! Mike is a treasure of our community, and we are happy to celebrate his achievements.

with Complicite, Mark Morris Dance Group, and Soweto Gospel Choir. Winter 2009 will also include significant residencies with Rubberbandance Group, the New York Philharmonic, The Silk Road Ensemble with YoYo Ma, and Andras Schiff. As in years past, UMS expects to serve thousands of people in southeast Michigan through lectures, artist interviews, master classes, artistsin residence, book clubs, social receptions, symposia, and other innovative programs designed to stimulate, educate, and inspire.
Partnership and Collaboration
UMS celebrates diversity in all its forms, a value represented by both the performances UMS presents and the communities with which it engages. The community engagement program has earned national acclaim for its work with diverse cultural groups, including the area's Asian, Arab American, African, MexicanLatino, and African American audiences, thanks to its proactive stance on partnering with and responding to individual community needs. Though based in Ann Arbor, UMS Audience Development programs reach out to the entire southeastern Michigan region.

ANNUAL FUND SUPPORT juiyi.2007Novemberi.2008
Thank you to those who make UMS programs and presentations possible. The cost of presenting worldclass perfor?mances and education programs exceeds the revenue UMS receives from ticket sales. The difference is made up through the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies. We are grateful to those who have chosen to make a difference for UMS! This list includes donors who made an annual gift to UMS between July 1, 2007 and November 1, 2008. Due to space constraints, we can only list those who donated $250 or more. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this list. Please call 734.647.1175 with any errors or omissions. Listing of donors to endowment funds begins on page 25.

MusiC and the ArtS are powerful tools in the healing process. That's why we created programs ranging from our Gifts of Art, which include bedside music and art galleries, to our harmonica class for pulmonary rehab patients. It's also why we support the University Musical Society. Because we value the arts and all they bring to our patients. That's the Michigan Difference,
