New for 2017-2018, we will be offering creative workshops for groups who purchase tickets to attend performances together. If you are bringing a group with an organization (such as a book club, education organization, or retirement community), you can, for a small additional fee, schedule a pre- or post-show workshop with a Triad Stage teaching artist. Workshops will use active, creative activities to invite participants to make deeper connections to the themes of the production they attend. Workshops can be scheduled at your location and according to what works best for your group.
For A Christmas Carol, pre-show workshops will invite participants to examine and re-consider their perceptions of this classic story. The workshop will tap into the ideas of perspective shift, redemption, and the various meanings and magic of holidays. Within these conversations, the workshop will also cover information about Charles Dickens’s inspirations for his novella and the way his story changed the way Western society views Christmas. Post-show workshops will offer and opportunity to discuss and respond creatively to the production.
For Beautiful Star, pre-show workshops will invite participants to consider their connections to the idea of faith, and the connections between the nativity story and the Southern tradition of storytelling. Post-show workshops will offer participants an opportunity to respond both intellectually and creatively to the play, telling their own stories of faith and the magic of Christmas.
For A Raisin in the Sun, pre-show workshops will use theater-based activities to explore major themes from the play, including the way our experiences affect our worldview and the struggle for an American dream. Topics can also include historical and theatrical context surrounding the play if desired. Post-show workshops will offer a space to respond intellectually and creatively to the production.
For Our Town, pre-show workshops will explore the unique literary and aesthetic elements of the play, as well as consider themes including the rhythms of life in small towns and the nature of humanity as a whole. Post-show workshops will offer participants an opportunity to respond both creatively and intellectually to the play, as well as to tell stories of their town, and of growing up or moving to the Triad region.
For The Passion of Teresa Rae King, pre-show workshops will offer a re-acquaintance with the town of Hawboro, an exploration of the way the source material of Zola’s novel Teresa Raquine, as well as a chance to wade into this tale of love-gone-wrong. Post-show workshops will offer an opportunity for participants to respond intellectually and creatively to the production.
