The Play's the Thing!
Artist visit to your classroom either before or after your trip to the theatre
Increase student comprehension from the play you are attending.
Your students will glean more from the play and the production by participating in The Play's the Thing. Both the pre- and post-show sessions encourage critical perception and analysis. The teaching artist comes to your classroom. We engage the students in activities and discussion that cover the IRT's production concept, parts of the script, the characters, themes, dramatic structure, theatre etiquette, and of course some historical background.
Fees: $75 per session or $3 per student when booked with your IRT performance reservation.
Active Dialogue for Reconciliation
Using elements of drama, students will examine tools that help us improve communication, develop understanding, effect change, and work towards peace. The teaching artist will lead your students through interactive exercises in which they will practice skills, identify obstacles, and move towards solutions regarding issues of gender, race, age, ethnicity, socio-economic standing, and history.
Fees: $90 per session
Enter on the Write Foot
Good writing and good acting both require artists to get to know their characters, to "walk a mile in their shoes." In this workshop, students will examine shoes and make inferences about the characters who own them. Hands-on observation, prewriting and writing, led by a professional writer, will provide students with the foundations they can use to build longer narrative pieces.
Fees: $90 per session
Students will examine Shakespeare's use of literary devices, the effect of his imagery on the audience and the performer, the characters and their motivations, the story, and themes through highly interactive exercises with professional actors. Students will see how recognizing, using, and appreciating these elements will enhance their work in Arts and Humanities, Language Arts, and Social Studies. Our multidisciplinary style is effective for all learning types. This session can be focused on the play your students are studying, OR we can present a general introduction to Shakespeare program.
$85 per session for Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
