The Z’s SCHOOLTIME Performance Programs annually offers two-dozen quality curriculum-based performances to nearly 30,000 schoolchildren in grades pre-K-12 and serves schools throughout southeastern Massachusetts. The Z also offers in-school residencies including mini-performances, workshops and theatre-prep visits. To add greater insight, understanding and interpretation of the content of shows, The Z offers on-line curriculum guides and pre and post-performance question and answer sessions with performing artists and their companies.[vc_separator color=”grey” align=”align_center” border_width=”2″] [vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]In-School Workshops and Residencies
For select performances The Z offers in-school workshops conducted by some of the most talented and creative artists of dance, theatre and music in the world. Designed to enrich and deepen students’ experience with the arts, these workshops also excite and engage students, provide greater insight, understanding and interpretation of the content matter, and enhance the theatre experience.
Pre and Post-Performance Discussion
Many of our performances are enhanced with interactive, informal discussions between the audience and special guests, performing artists and their companies. Discussions include an exploration of the themes, the art form, and opportunities for questions and answers.
The Z recognizes that budgets are under great strain, therefore listed here are resources that may be useful when looking for assistance in funding tickets, transportation, and costs for our Educational Programs.
Professional Development Opportunities for Teachers
The Z offers professional development workshops that provide teachers with performing arts-based skills to teach core curriculum. These high quality, in-depth workshops help teachers learn how to integrate the arts into the classroom.
Special Thank You
The Z’s education programs are highly subsidized in order to keep costs affordable for all. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we help serve nearly 30,000 children annually.
