Elementary School Outreach Program

Studies demonstrate that theatre, when introduced into children’s lives, is a powerful way to engage and excite them in a learning environment. Theatre enhances self-esteem, teaches discipline, extends communication skills, broadens cultural horizons and challenges young people to think more comprehensively about the world in which they live.

A GLT On Tour in-school performance is an affordable, timely and effective learning tool.

Each script is chosen to align with SC curriculum standards especially in the area of creative dramatics. We ensure that every audience enjoys the appropriate experience for their developmental level.

A GLT On Tour in-school performance includes the following:

  • Study Guides that include theatrical learning strategies for students to build critical thinking skills are provided to educators a few weeks before the performance.
  • Classroom activities to enhance the students’ theatre-going experience are offered as a supplement to the performance.
  • Performers will lead discussions with students after each performance.
  • Each performance runs approximately 45 minutes allowing ample time for post performance discussions
 
 

In just two years, GLT On Tour has reached over
20,000 elementary school children all across the Upstate.
