Give to the Max Day 2018

We’re Celebrating 20 years of Excellence in Theatre Education This Give to the Max Day!

Donors like you help Children’s Theatre Company educate, challenge, and inspire children with high-quality theatre education programs like Neighborhood Bridges. Thanks to your support, this theatre-based story-telling program has been supporting students for 20 years as they build confidence, practice teamwork, and learn to be inquisitive. Celebrate two decades of this important program with a gift today!

Help us put students and their stories center stage.

Neighborhood Bridges classes start with stories and questions. Teaching artists encourage students to question narratives by asking, “Who has the power in this story?” “Whose voice don’t we hear?” Guided by their teaching artist, students learn to think about power, representation, and perspective in stories.

Working in small groups, students reimagine the stories to highlight what they see as important and solve the issues they see, often incorporating their own lives and experiences into their retellings. They learn teamwork and confidence when they perform these newly imagined stories for their classrooms.

After a year of practicing, each classroom writes an original story they perform together on stage at Children’s Theatre Company in front of friends and family. “This is truly children’s theatre,” says Bridges Teaching Artist Laura H. “The kids are creating their own plays based on stories and ideas that are important to them.”

Donors like you fund programs like Neighborhood Bridges. This is how you put students, their voices, and their stories center stage.
