The Secondary Theatre Institute is postponed until 2021.

Registration Details

June 29 - July 1, 2020

8:30 AM - 4:30 PM  at the Forbes Center for the Performing Arts

The Secondary Theatre Institute focuses on theatre as a collaborative art through a series of hands-on workshops that explore acting, directing, devising, and dramaturgy. During the week, we consider how to use drama and theatre pedagogies to build community, deepen skills in the art form, and engage students through story. Tools and strategies taught in this session serve both secondary classroom educators and extra-curricular theatre directors.

"Finally! A professional development opportunity that was useful, meaningful, and packed with ideas and strategies that will be useful in any classroom- not just my performing arts classes. More people need this training! I didn’t want to leave when it was over and that NEVER happens in a PD!" -Performing Arts Program Coordinator/Theatre Instructor

"New strategies, innovative ideas, a new plan for the year!" -High School Director

Participants were asked if they would recommend:

"Yes- times a million! The instructor was engaging and dynamic and the material presented made so much sense! While it was geared toward theatre teachers the strategies should be used in all subject areas."

"Absolutely! The class was engaging, interactive, and extremely useful. I came back to school energized and armed with practical new strategies for my classroom."
