Education at Roundabout is proud to partner with NYC public schools in both school-wide, year-round partnerships and individual classroom partnerships.
These year-long partnerships are tailored to meet the needs of your school and can take place in several classes or grade levels. Plus, you and your students are invited to Roundabout productions.
Curriculum Connections Residencies
Curriculum Connections Residencies connect the content, themes, or skills of one core subject area to a theatrical discipline and a Roundabout production, which the students will attend.
These residencies are customized to fit the goals and needs of the partner teacher and students. Each workshop is co-planned and co-taught by the Roundabout Teaching Artist and partner teacher. Typically visits occur once a week over the course of 8–12 weeks.See a report from a school that used this model.
Producing Partners Residencies
Producing Partners Residencies provide the resources of a professional company to engage students in the practice of theatrical skills.
Working on a school production with teaching artists in all areas of theatre (design, directing, stage management, et al.), teachers and students will replicate the functions of a professional theatre.See a report from a school that used this model.
School-wide partners are offered a variety of on-site experiences at Roundabout. These include: IATSE Hidden Career Path Days, College & Career Readiness Day, and the Student Theatre Arts Festival. For more information about these please email our staff.
Education also offers an on-site afterschool program for NYC public school students seeking additional theatrical experiences.Learn more about the Roundabout Youth Ensemble.
School Partnerships are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council and the Gray Foundation.
