Free Educator Previews

Educators with valid school identification are invited to attend SCT's free Educator Preview Evenings. Join us this season on each Tuesday before opening night to preview the new show, and enjoy workshops, special guest speakers, refreshments, and fun!

You'll begin your evening at our Dramatic Connection Workshop where SCT Teaching Artists share lesson exercises that explore the themes, subjects, and style of the play, while engaging in student-friendly kinesthetic learning. A special guest speaker connected with the show will also join teachers for an informal Q &A. Past Previews have featured playwrights, directors, composers, and designers who offer an up-close, exclusive insider's view of the play! You'll take home resource packets with lesson plans and a show poster. Following the workshop, you'll head into our beautiful theatre to catch a sneak preview of the performance before it opens to the public! Educators are invited to bring one (1) guest with them for both the workshop and the performance.

Educators are eligible for earning 3 clock hours for attending BOTH the workshop and performance during the season.

NEW IN 2020!

These workshops and performances have become so popular that we have had to update our system. You will now be required to log-in to your existing SCT account before reserving your two free tickets for each performance and workshop. All educators who have booked a school show or a homeschool group reservation for 10 or more students within the past two years have an account and the exclusive permissions to register for these special events.  All you need is the email used with your previous SCT reservation. Not sure of your password? Just hit the 'reset password' button and follow the steps on your screen to reset the password. Please do not create a new account.   

New to our program? Haven't booked a field trip within the past two years? Want to invite other educators in your community? Please create an account on our website and contact schoolshows@sct.org to have your account approved for free educator previews.

Questions? Please email schoolshows@sct.org.
