Data Shows Arts Field Trips Improve Test Scores & Social-Emotional Skills

Alliance Theatre for Youth and Families produces developmentally appropriate shows each season. These productions adhere to the same mission statement as the Alliance Theatre adult programming, which is to set the highest artistic standards and create the powerful experience of shared theatre for a diverse audience. A major goal of the Alliance Theatre for Youth is to diminish the age gaps between us, and no other regional theatre of the Alliance’s size consistently produces the same quality of work for all age groups. These plays are chosen with an eye to the needs of school curriculum and of young people and families in our community. They are also chosen to appeal to an age range that extends beyond the target age determination of each.

Ticket cost: $5.00/student, teachers are complimentary

Pre/Post-Show Workshops

Interested in enriching and engaging workshops for your students that relate to your Alliance Theatre field trip? Pre/post-show workshops are a great chance to extend learning beyond the stage and can occur virtually or in-person.

Pre/post-show workshops can be drama-based or literacy-based.

Drama-based workshops focus on using the tools of the actor (voice, body, and imagination) to explore moments from the play. Students will act as the characters themselves, recreate scenes from the play, and/or explore central themes. 

Literacy-based workshops make a stronger connection to school curriculum and grade level standards. For example, students explore the characteristics and qualities of the main characters, setting, problem/solution, etc. through arts-integrated exercises.

If your group would like to attend a pre/post-show workshop, please fill out the form at the link below.
