Teach Through Theatre

Do you need a new way to inspire students? Teach literacy? History? Arts?  Then join the audience for an actOUT! experience you and your students won't soon forget!

ActOUT! produces 3-4 plays per year incorporating Waterloo Region children and youth. Our productions are an affordable way to expose students to the performance arts. You class may even be supporting a classmate involved in the production!

ActOUT! School Matinees

Help your students bring literacy to life!

Our shows:

  • provide a Curriculum Connections package to teachers for exploration of related topics connected to the performance. Science, Math, Music, Art, Social Studies are all involved in a Curriculum Connection.
  • are typically 90-120 minutes long
  • are performed in accessible theatres
  • are enacted solely by children and youth
  • provide a full live theatrical experience (fully costumed, sets, props, etc.)
  • offer affordable reduced rate tickets for schools and homeschooling groups - Teachers attend free!
  • are presented in theatres each December, February and May

    ActOUT offers a free post-show talk | Q&A session with our actors and artistic team. An opportunity for school audiences to provide comment, discover performance tricks, understand the acting process and possibly be inspired to explore the arts themselves.

    A challenge both for our actors and your students to build their public speaking skills by having to think on the spot.
