Theatre in Our Schools
The month of March is historically when we celebrate and talk about the power of #TheatreInOurSchools every single day. And yet, we can advocate for its inclusion all year long!
Join us and thousands of students and theatre educators to raise awareness of the benefits of theatre education. Together we can draw attention to the need for more access to theatre education for all students. Help spread the message to your communities—friends, family, social media followers, school boards, elected officials, and more—that theatre education teaches vital 21st-century skills critical to success on and off the stage!
