Since 1997 the School Outreach Program has brought 3,500 to 4,000 children each year from Westchester County schools into our theatre. Children represent a variety of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds from about 40 different schools throughout the County. For many of these children, it is their first experience with live theatre and it can be life changing - the start of a life-long love and appreciation of theatre! Through the School Outreach Program, which offers free or reduced price tickets, learning extends from the classrooms to the stage
The productions are often based on children's literature and represent a variety of culturally diverse and socially and historically relevant themes. All the Outreach productions are tied to curriculum through study guides, and teachers are encouraged to incorporate the plays' themes into classroom discussions and topics. As budget cutbacks at our schools have limited our arts education programs, the School Outreach Program fills a critical need.
The School Outreach season is made possible by generous contribtions from sponsors and individuals. Click here for more information.
