TheatreWorks for Schools
We bring the most innovative, applicable, and powerful arts education resources to Bay Area schools. The wisdom of teaching core curriculum through an art form is proven to be a fantastic way to address all learning styles—it’s fun, active, and opens profound analytical connections in your students.
"My husband and I believe strongly that arts education is essential for building innovative thinkers who will be our nation’s leaders of tomorrow."
—First Lady Michelle Obama.
Bring contemporary issues and core subjects alive through theatre. Give your students an experience they will never forget! Participating schools receive a study guide as well as an in-school, pre-show workshop and a post-show talk-back with the cast.
