Community Engagement

WORKSHOPS with Virginia Repertory Theatre

Throughout the season select groups of students have the unique opportunity to attend a theater workshop with the cast of Virginia Repertory performance. Held in our beautiful glass atrium children and teachers will participate in theater games, acting warmups and improv!

Intern Collaboration

We offer professional development for college students. As a way to get the word out about what our children’s program has to offer for classroom teachers, college students are invited to see a performance of their choice. Prior arrangements must be made through their professors. Picture ID is required for entry for all interns.

Literacy Link Program

Through generous donations from the community and sponsors, classroom teachers are provided books that are aligned to the correlating theater performance.

Giving Tree Music Drum Circles

Multiple times a season we offer teachers the opportunity to bring their students to participate in interactive drum circles held outside in our Mahaffey Plaza. These experiences can foster a musical foundation and a sense of self-worth to build on for the rest of their lives.
