In addition to performing in the touring productions, actors will be trained to work as teaching artists to provide workshops that further foster students’ engagement and understanding of each shows themes. Each show is expected to have between 40-60 touring performances and 20-30 workshops; the majority are scheduled during daytime school hours (8am-4pm). For more information, click HERE
