Creating meaningful arts experiences

“The Global Dance Party matinee was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!! Wonderful response from students. The vibe is both cool and serious. The quality is outstanding. A high level production, with beautiful sound and lights and dancers who are so well rehearsed, so professional, and so full of spirit. This show is a slam dunk for us. It perfectly complements our students' learning as well as interest.” - Teacher, The Northwest School

 

STG conducts a range of programs each year for students in schools and youth organizations:

School Residency Programs
STG works with local and touring artists to offer performing arts residency programs for in-school and after-school programs. Tailored to suit each individual school or community program, residency activities range in length, integrate with curriculum and include ancillary activities such as attendance of a performance.

Student/Community Matinees
STG presents and produces several daytime matinees each season for school and community groups at the historic Paramount, Moore and Neptune Theatres. These specially priced programs make the performing arts accessible to student groups and include workshops and study materials to expand student learning.
