Touring & Community Engagement

Will tours be taking place this year?

Due to the current pandemic, we are not planning to send our touring companies out to schools or community spaces this season. But that doesn’t mean we’re not ready to engage with you and your students!

However, we will be creating virtual content for arts educators to use in their classrooms all year, including lectures, skill shares, performances and more.

Are you an educator who would like to bring performances and theatre and dance curriculum into your class? Please contact Mary Anderson at cw1962@wayne.edu to begin the conversation.
