TheaterWorks

What is TheaterWorks?

 

TheaterWorks is a grant-funded program that connects at-risk students to both the profound content of each production in our season and vocational opportunities available in theater through study of the diverse areas of work that goes into putting up a professional play. We facilitate workshops both in-school and at the theater that engage the students in the relevant context of each play and a range of topics from playwriting and stage combat to marketing and fundraising through the artists involved in each production.

 

A TheaterWorks “package” includes:

 

Pre-Performance
Workshop

Students receive an introduction to the play and some “behind the scenes” work that went into it by focusing on a particular theatrical career.

 

Free Tickets

For one Saturday matinee of a 2015/16 season show

 

 

Post-Show
Workshop

Students engage in a discussion on the show with the artists involved and/or participate in a practical activity based on the career focus for that production.

 

 

 

This program is designed for at-risk students in school groups or community organizations who seek an engaging and relevant connection to great theater. Past partners have included The Source at Red Bank Regional High School, and The Spot at Asbury Park High School, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Monmouth County, and the Friends in Need Children’s Center. Any school or community group with an interest in the content or themes of a show in the Two River season, or a theatrical vocation, is welcome to apply to take part in a TheaterWorks package.

 

How can we be a part of TheaterWorks?

School and community groups can apply for a TheaterWorks package for any show in Two River’s season. This program is designed to adapt to the needs and circumstances of each partnering school or community group, so workshops can be scheduled across three separate days(workshops will take place at your location), or take place all on one Saturday, before and after the matinee. You may indicate on the application which schedule best fits your needs. Submit your applications early as space is limited for each show.
