The Grand Theatre is offering educators a line-up of seven school shows and enrichment opportunities to help students connect to their curriculum in new ways.
“If a picture is worth a thousand words, just think of the power of a live performance to quickly communicate ideas, awaken minds and deepen meaning,” says Colin Wiginton, the City of Kingston’s cultural director.
Extended learning opportunities are being offered with most of the shows and, depending on the performance, may include:
- Study guides
- Talkbacks – moderated post-show Q&As
- Master classes – opportunities for students to work with performers
- In Conversations – moderated pre-show lectures and Q&As exploring imagination, creativity, inspiration and vision.
Interested educators are encouraged to inquire about further details by contacting Mat Poirier, mpoirier [at] cityofkingston.ca.
