BROADWAY INCLUSION PROGRAM

STG works in partnership with the Northshore Senior Center to provide theatre arts programing to participants with cognitive and physical disabilities. Adult participants meet once a week to explore musical theatre and movement based activities in a creative and safe environment. At the end of each quarter, participants present a final share, where family and community members are invited. Interested in participating or learning how to bring this program to your organization?

STG has made the decision to put our Broadway Inclusion Program classes on hold from March 4, 2020 - April 4, 2020 due to the COVID-19 virus. The next session will take place on April 8, 2020. This is a preventative measure taken to support the health and well-being of our students, teaching team and partners as per the guidelines set by the CDC. Thank you in advance for your understanding.


DIGITAL EDUCATION PROGRAM: LAS HISTORIAS VERDADERAS

STG’s Digital Education Program (DEP) focuses on merging the arts and digital communication into one. We launched our DEP program in 2018 with DEAR EVAN HANSEN and in 2019, we worked with John Leguizamo’s LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS. The DEP: LAS HISTORIAS VERDADERAS focused on researching, writing a report and creating an art project around a Latinx historical figure. The projects were shared via social media, teaching students digital and social responsibility. This program was intended for Latinx high school populations. Students received free tickets to John Leguizamo’s performance of LATIN HISTORY FOR MORON on October 23, 2019 at The Moore Theatre.
