This past season, we served over 5,000 students with our Literature Alive shows, providing a field trip experience, study guide, and pre-show workshop that connects with CCSS and National Core Arts Standards.
With your input, we hope to tailor our 2020-21 programs to best fit the curriculums and COVID-19 action plans of our participating districts.
