For just the cost of a student matinée, teachers receive:

  • Professional development and tickets to preview performances
  • Pre- and post-show classroom workshops for all participating students
  • A Prologue or post-show chat for your students on the day of your fall visit

The programs begin with two days of professional development in Stratford:

Teaching Contemporary Theatre Program: August 18 & 19
Teaching Shakespeare Program: August 20 & 21

Take part in one or both! 

Registration information available in January 2020

Wondering what happened to the Teaching Musical Theatre Program in August? Our program is now called Teaching Contemporary Theatre Program, which will have workshops on song and dance from musical theatre such as Chicago, and Frankenstein Revived along with building meaningful character relationships from Wendy & Peter Pan, exploring comedic styles from Spamalot and much, much more!

We realize that our shows are multilayered, have diverse themes and content and cater to a broad range of interested teachers and students. With this in mind, the contemporary approach was a valuable avenue to explore so that more educators and more students have a chance to work with some of Canada’s most gifted theatre artists and see some of the best theatre in the world!

We hope you will join us for what will be a fulfilling, creative, imaginative and insightful way into our 2020 season.

"This workshop is the best that I have ever attended in over 20 years of teaching and professional development. I was completely inspired to bring the world of Shakespeare to my Grade 5 students, and they, in turn, responded with the utmost enthusiasm.”
