  • Ok. Again, not knowing about your stage or the play itself, here are a couple of ideas. Hopefully someone else will pipe in. For the "distant village" one, you could add plants (cover the pots), shrubbery, maybe a rock or two, and some rustic furniture. Try to keep the colors consistent with the backdrop. read more

  • RE: Hiring is hard


    From my own experience on both coasts, I agree with Elizabeth and Jerry. However, even having a degree doesn't assure that you know your material. A theatre I worked with some years ago hired two grads of a "technical theatre program" at a local two-year college to work in the scene shop. To make a read more

  • Hey hive mind, Our production is co-curricular this year, so we've been using most of our class time the last few weeks learning music and exploring character and staging. The show is in January, but I need to give the class some kind of formal assessment for mid-terms this month. In past years when read more

  • Wonderland


    Has anyone had success in finding/getting the rights to Wonderland? I have emailed Frank Wildhorn's website a couple of times but no answer. I would love to try to nail it down for next spring. I have to plan really early - and I like to know what I am doing for the following school year in January. read more

  • Hi everyone! I am directing a production of "She Kills Monsters" at Lowell High School, and am in need of fight choreography. I was a certified actor combatant 15 years ago, so I'm not quite up to snuff at the moment, and I'm having a really difficult time with my general search online. Does anyone read more

  • RE: Upper level Courses


    Blake, You say you have a production class in the spring. I did the same at Asheville High School, but our production class was students in Theatre III, Theatre IV, and Play Production, all Honors level classes. On alternate years, a Musical Theatre class was offered that same class period, taught by read more

    • 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!
