workshops and residencies


Classroom residencies provide imaginative, differentiated learning experiences for students. Tailored to meet the specific curricular goals of the classroom, residencies enhance literacy, expand creative expression, and cultivate collaboration. George Street Playhouse teaching artists are trained to integrate theatre practice into Social Studies, English Language Arts, and Science classrooms.

Theatre at the Core
This ten-session residency investigates how theatre practice
can enhance core curriculum content. Whether exploring a unit
on the Civil War, Shakespeare, or how human choices impact the
environment, our teaching artists will partner with you to create
dynamic learning opportunities for your students.

Ensemble Project
This special project is tailored to the curricular vision of a classroom or school. Do you
want your students to deepen their understanding of a particular theme or historical
event by creating an original play? Or develop their collaborative abilities by creating
and performing an original musical? The Ensemble Project focuses on the value of
collaboration and the unique contributions every student has to offer. (Grades PreK-12)
