Does your ‘Theatre for Young Audiences’ show need an audience?
You have a show, or an idea for a show, that you believe children and youth will LOVE. Since it has educational value, their parents and teachers will love it too. The school gymnasium will become your Globe Theatre, and you’ll have a captive audience that is collectively thrilled to be watching theatre instead of sitting in math class. So how do you get your show into schools? Where do you start?

Start by knowing what challenges to expect, and how to meet those challenges. Working in and with schools can be very complex, but this exclusive session with arts education and community arts professional Tim Whalley, (the Prologue to the Performing Arts Executive Director) will give you insider information on all the fundamentals, such as:

1. Who should you reach out to? – How school boards and schools are structured
2. What is the place of arts in schools? – Basic curriculum expectations in the arts and how your work can enhance them
3. What are educators looking for? – Components of a successful school performance/program
4. What do you need to be able to work in schools? – Vulnerable Sector Checks, Study Guides, Liability Insurance
So join us! You’ll leave with a fuller understanding of what it means to work in and with schools, and you’ll have a clearer picture of your next steps.
