Education Program

Theatre opens minds to new worlds. It can uplift, push us out of our comfort zone and allow us to experience life from another’s perspective. Our education program is one of the country’s most successful, providing more than 11,500 young people, school students, and high school teachers annually with the opportunity to experience outstanding live theatre, hear their stories on stage, and actively participate in workshops and work experience.
