About Our Programs
Southern Rep’s “School to Stage Pipeline” gives students age 4-18 the chance to explore and engage with live, professional theatre, participate in their own productions, and pursue their wildest and most creative dreams. Whether students are watching a production, taking a trip behind the scenes, or staging their own creation, our programs have proven to improve students’ literacy, critical thinking skills, cooperative abilities, knowledge of theatre as an art form, and creative confidence. To date, more than 18,000 kids have experienced the joy and magic of great theatre through Southern Rep Arts Education Programs. With our scholarship program, steep discount offers, and free events, we’re committed to making sure everybody can get involved!
Summer Theatre Camps
We believe that every young person is an artist.
And we offer Afterschool Workshops in the fall and spring and Summer Camps aimed to encourage and cultivate the artistry, imagination, and creativity of New Orleans’ young artists.
We have workshops for young people ages 4-7, 8-12, and 13-18. These workshops are open to all levels of experience. All your artist needs is excitement and enthusiasm. In every workshop, we use theatre and performance to give young people a safe space to take risks, learn, be silly, play, collaborate, and create. Workshops are eight weeks long and meet twice a week.
Thanks to our sponsors, Southern Rep is able to offer a limited number of need-based scholarships for all our Workshops and Summer Camps; please email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
After School Theatre Workshops
These workshops have been tailored to be creative, exploratory, and process-based. Both workshops culminate in a performance for families, friends, and loved ones, but we want to make sure that we focus on the progress and experience of each child. As always, we accept all performers without an audition and each child will perform at the end of the workshop. These workshops are about discovering how to use our bodies, voices, and imaginations to create theatre and how to work together. And of course, these workshops are all about fun!
Because we believe that every young person in New Orleans deserves access to arts education programming, we offer scholarships for those families that need financial assistance. If your child is on the cusp of the age ranges, feel free to email us at email@example.com
Free and Discount Student Matinee Program
A field trip to the theatre also helps teachers meet Louisiana Educational Benchmarks & Standards ELA-1-M2, ELA-5-M2, ELA-6-M3, and ELA-1-H3, in an innovative setting that is sure to awaken your students’ love for literature and theatre.
In addition, teachers are provided with a Study Guide (which meets the Benchmark requirements) to connect the production to their curriculum. After the show, students are treated to a “talk back” with the cast and crew, allowing them to further engage, and ask questions about the theatrical process.
