Interactive theater tours are a two and a half hour theater encounter with fun, educational activities in technical theater, dance, drama and visual arts. The tour includes a backstage tour, gallery walk, sound and lighting demonstrations, and a grand finale with dance and drama starring participants! Flexible dates and times are available to accommodate school and bus schedules.
A tour can be adapted to any type of educational requirement but most include:
Prologue and Overture (20 minutes)
All students start in the 400-seat theater for a welcome, introductions, overview, and video presentation

Following the opening presentation, the students will be broken into 4 groups and rotate through 4 different stations for 15 minutes each:
Technical Theater Session
