Shows don't have to begin and end in the theatre. Now, students going to see a Broadway show have several opportunities to keep the performance alive through the Stages For Learning program.
Study guides aimed at theatregoing junior and senior high school students include classroom activities, worksheets, and assignments developed for use with several school subjects. Guides are available to teachers through the New York Times Newspapers in Education Program together with Stages For Learning, and are free with participation in the Wednesday Workshops.
With the faculty of Collaborative Arts Project 21, students can participate in interactive Wednesday Workshops, which include creative writing, acting, music, a matinee, a post-show discussion, and a meal.
The Stages For Learning Wednesday Workshops have been held every Wednesday since the fall and continue through March. The Broadway Grill hosts the Titanic workshop, while Comedy Nation holds a second workshop for 1776. Camp Broadway and Dodger Endemol Theatrical Productions produce both programs.
For more information on both programs, Camp Broadway can be reached by calling 212-575-2929 or through e-mail at TOCAMPBWAY@aol.com.
