Grades K-12

This program offers long-term on-campus residencies custom-designed for each school. From the fundamentals of acting, to adaptation, to advanced theatre training, we will design a before-, during-, or after-school program to fit your needs.  Northlight’s goal is to increase a student’s participation in the arts by making theatre accessible while building creativity, reflection, confidence, and collaboration skills.

Pre-Residency

Planning meeting between classroom teacher, Northlight Director of Education, and Teaching Artist.

Residency

Sessions scheduled per residency can be customizable, ranging between 8-24 sessions.
Each residency is structured to give students skill-based learning in theatre and drama, moving into a process of making their own theatrical production (adapted or original). Residency culminates with an “informance” (informal performance) for peers, administrators, and students, capped off with reflection and celebration.

Optional Northlight On-site Visit

Attend a Northlight Season Access student matinee to give students access to a professional theatre experience, modeling the art they will be making in the classroom.

Post-Residency

Post-mortem between classroom teacher, Northlight Director of Education, and Teaching Artist. All student and teacher assessments and rubrics will be collected.
