Touring Productions

We make theater, and we take it lots of places.   We can come to your school community too!  

Click here to learn more about these productions, and/or to learn more about how your school can prepare for a performance!

School Residencies

Let our teaching artists take your students on a journey on the Underground Railroad or a steamboat trip down the mighty  Mississippi.  Or we can organize a civil rights-era lunch counter sit-in, a hero’s journey from favorite classroom literature, or an adventure with one of history’s most famous explorers.

We design and conduct our residencies in partnership with you as the teachers, so they can look a lot of different ways.  Click here to learn more about how we can bring learning alive in your classroom.

Professional Development

We are highly regarded across the region for our innovative professional development work with educators.  In practical hands-on sessions, we help teachers build skills and confidence using creative movement and drama-based instructional strategies to bring all kinds of curriculum to life.  Learn more about how we can customize a program for your school community.
