Arts In Education
GTT's Arts in Education programs have elevated and enhanced the lives of hundreds of young people and will continue to expand as an essential component of Group Theatre Too. These educational outreach programs are basic to Group Theatre Too's resolution to foster a love of the performing arts in today's youths while developing a perceptive and intelligent audience of tomorrow. GTT offers exciting, new and innovative educational outreach programs, that have already touched the lives of hundreds of students.
Good reasons abound for an academic institution or other group to align themselves with a professional New York theatre company and employ professional artists and instructors. Professional artists can bring a range of skills and experience to a program that are different than those of a regular faculty member or academic instructor. Programs that you thought too complex or demanding to produce can be realized with the aid of Group Theatre Too's staff and specialized expertise. New choices create incredible possibilities in student education and of course a better student/school production/program means a more engaged audience with higher attendance and powerful program growth.
GTT'S PROGRAMS INCLUDE:
THE PERFORMER'S PLAYGROUND: An after-school or in-school residency for students to participate in the rehearsing and mounting of a full-scale musical production.
