In the Classroom

PlayMakers Repertory Company sends professional Teaching Artists into your classroom to prepare students to attend our shows and/or explore curriculum based themes. We work with you to develop a residency tailor-made to fit your needs. The teaching artists can help contextualize the world of the play for your students and also offer interactive lessons that seamlessly support your curriculum. We build residencies that are focused on either a particular show in our season or based solely on your curriculum needs. From mathematics to science to literature to world history and beyond, we will work with you to develop a specific workshop based upon your needs. The cost of a teaching artist is $75 per hour.
