  • Best Tartuffe Script?

    Discussion

    Respectfully, George, that was fine 30 years ago. Now there is zero reason to have any kind of weapon that can actually fire used in educational theater and a whole host of reasons to stick with non-firable replicas from rubber or wood and a volume moderated gun shot effect instead. We've had too read more

    It's a risk-benefit analysis. The risk of something going very wrong is far, far, far greater than the benefit of doing it with a weapon that is fireable.

    • Important Arts Survey

      The Educational Theatre Association is collaborating with The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) , the NAMM Foundation,  the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO), and the National Art Education Association (NAEA) to collect data about the use of federal funds to support theatre, dance, music, media arts and visual arts in K-12 education. The hope is to gather district and/or state level responses from all fifty states, so that our organizations can illuminate the amazing work our educators do every day.  We would love to be able to share success stories in our communications, share best practices with our members about how to access these funds, and include the information in our advocacy materials.  The survey will take you about 20 minutes, and for some questions, may require that you reach out to whomever oversees federal programs and funding in your district.  These may be among the most important 20 minutes you spend in the next few days, helping us capture the power of data to advocate for theatre education.   Please take a few moments to help.  
      The survey can be accessed here:

      The suvey closes soon- it only remains open until  DECEMBER 2nd 

      Thank you for participating and spreading the word!
