THEATRE IN CONTEXT
Teaching tomorrow's audiences today
Theatre In Context is a comprehensive educational initiative developed jointly by The Human Race Theatre Company and Muse Machine. As a curriculum-based program, it thematically links a fully-staged Loft Theatre production with an in-school touring production presented at junior and senior high schools throughout southwestern Ohio. Popular among both teachers and students, Theatre In Context is designed to inspire young audiences while dramatically enhancing literature, history and social studies by introducing additional materials and opportunities to underscore connections between the two plays featured each season.
In addition to the two productions each season, Theatre In Context also provides lesson plans, study guides, recommended reading and viewing lists, workshops and discussion opportunities on related subjects, and student tickets to the associated Loft production at a substantially reduced rate.
For the 2013-2014 Season, we celebrate America's contribution to the world of performing arts—the musical—and its portrayal of historical events with a new work, Historical! In September and October, we will present the show in dozens of schools in 11 Ohio counties. Professional actors tour with set pieces and costumes to bring to life moments from famous musicals for the education and enjoyment of thousands of students. Historical! is tied to and followed by our Loft Series production of Fiddler on the Roof, onstage October 31 – November 17.
Historical! has been commissioned through the Marsha Hanna Memorial Fund specifically for our Theatre In Context program.
Schools and organizations that are not a part of Muse Machine can still enjoy the In School Tour.
