Arts Education

Our award-winning educational programs are designed for youth from a wide range of backgrounds, communities, and schools. We engage with youth to explore all aspects of making theatre: story and expression, connection with others, examination of self, and discovery of the world—all while having fun!

  • Summer Studios for Grades 2 through Pre-College

    Spacious summer weeks are the perfect time to take a deep dive into what makes theatre so special. Students work alongside our active professional theatre company, under the mentorship of experienced Teaching Artists.
