Info for Educators & Schools
The Citadel Theatre is proud to share our productions and our passion for theatre with school audiences. We believe that all individuals, be they youth or adults, should have the opportunity to experience, appreciate, and participate in live theatre. Theatre is a communal and participatory art form, and we invite students to join us at our school matinees and workshops for all grade levels, and Citadel Students Club for junior and senior high students, in addition to our regular programming.
Tools For Educators
To assist with your student’s learning and engagement, all of our mainstage and select seasonal productions are accompanied with an Enrichment Guide. The Enrichment Guide is catered to the show, and will explore a variety of topics pertaining to the production. Educators can use our enrichment guides to build or supplement their lesson plans to further connect their students to the production as well as the curriculum. For those looking to engage further, we offer educational workshops with trained theatre professionals. Workshops may be held at the Citadel, at your school, or digitally and explore a variety of topics including musical theatre, stage combat, and theatre production to name a few, or the topic can be customized to fit your student’s interests.
When you are ready to book a field trip for your students, please review the information packages for Students Club or School Matinees. The booking form can be found at the end of each document or you may complete the online form instead. Workshops may be booked on their own, or with a School Matinee for a discounted price. Please feel free to reach out to our Education & Group Sales Administrator, Josephine Hendrick, at email@example.com with any questions or concerns about our educational programming.
We are happy to offer complimentary supervisor tickets for every 25 paid students at a School Matinee, and every 15 paid student packages for the Citadel Students Club. We are also able to offer group pricing if you are interested in bring your students to a performance outside of our educational programming.
