Educational Resources & Study Guides
Student matinee performances are supplemented by free curriculum-based study guides for participating schools which are available below.
Pre and post-show in-school visits by Gamm Education Staff are also available for $100 per session. Pre-show visits provide students with information about the world of the play, the playwright, themes, characters, historical context and the significance of the play – both when it was written and how it resonates in our contemporary world. Post-show visits help students debrief and ask questions about the production. Students and teachers may also work together to create their own adaptation of the play-a process which can also be supported by in-class visits. To arrange a visit, please contact Steve Kidd by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 401-723-4266.
