Part of our mission is to share classic works of literature with area young people (and their teachers) through education enrichment opportunities.
Brave New World Theatre Workshop
The Brave New World Theatre Workshop is held periodically as funding permits. Teachers who attend participate in various seminars, attend a performance of our current production, and participate in a post-production discussion with local respondents. Drama and English teachers who attend are able to sharpen their skills at this provocative and inspirational workshop and make valuable contacts for future endeavors. Here’s what one attendee said about the workshop: “Thank you for offering this workshop. The program from start to finish was outstanding; I cannot remember any other workshop that was more helpful and relevant.”
Contact us for information on future Brave New World Theatre Workshops.
Educational handouts are available for grades K5 through high school.
