Education Outreach

Our mission is to help you, the educator, meet curriculum goals through interactive sessions to enhance and engage your students to think creatively, to use their imaginations, and to experience learning through the arts. 

OPTION 1: Clowes to You - School Visit

Engage your students with a professional teaching artist before or after the performance. A teaching artist can visit your school with any of the programs listed below. 

OPTION 2: Clowes to You - Video Conference

Outreach Programs

GETTING READY FOR THE PERFORMANCE!

Prepare your students for the theatre experience and the content of the performance by connecting with Clowes prior to your visit! Learn the expectations for the audience before, during and after a performance and discover how actors, stage managers, stage technicians and the people who work in the theatre prepare for a performance.

Price: $100.00 per session

Grades K-5


BE THE CRITIC! LOOKING INSIDE THE PERFORMANCE

Would you like your students to say more than just “I liked that performance I saw at Clowes Hall?” After your performance, learn how to analyze the theatrical process including characterization, costuming, sets, lighting and sound design and understand the role of the audience.

Price: $100.00 per session

Grades 3-8  


TURNING A NOVEL INTO A PLAY

Learn how to think and work together as theatrical collaborators (playwrights, directors, designers, and actors). Your students will explore the creative process by taking on artistic roles that turn a scene from a novel into a short play including student performances. 

Advance planning with Clowes Staff required, please allow 4 weeks to schedule this session.
