What is TheatrePLAY? 

TheatrePLAY!  develops theatre programs specific for the needs of your school, We are a cooperative of committed actor/teaching artists who all grew up in community theatre programs, trained as professional actors with careers that we are proud of and have worked extensively with children's theatre organzations. We want to pass on the skills that are built by ensemble theatre/movement/music training, Nothing beats training we do for developing the skills that you use your whole life in ANY arena!  Our workshops are fun, interactive, physical and we organically incorporate state arts/dance/music standards, not to mention connect the work we do to science, language arts and math. 

Ways that other schools have used us: 

  • 6-week workshops, meeting all the grade level classes on one day a week, 
  • One-Day Assembly Workshops, 
  • After-school enrichment programs, 
  • Voice and speech workshops during play production with support during production
