Education Programs

PlayMakers

PlayMakers is WaterTower’s newly re-imagined summer theatre program geared toward students ages 8 to 16 who are interested in developing a deeper understanding and enjoyment of the theatre arts.

Led by theatre professionals of varying disciplines, this two-week intensive is designed to expand the imagination of each student while building a strong artistic foundation and theatrical skill set that can be used in the classroom or on the professional stage. Inspired from the fairy tale classic, Pinocchio, and utilizing the tools developed over the two-week program, students will work together to create an original piece of theatre unique to them. From conception to creation to performance, our PlayMakers summer theatre program will engage the future storytellers of tomorrow for an inspiring, fun-filled, and innovative two-weeks!

For more information on PlayMakers, contact Kelsey Leigh Ervi, Associate Artistic Director, at 972-450-6277.

Student Matinees

Student Matinees are offered most seasons if there is a production that will be of interest to and suitable for middle and/or high school students. Student matinee performances include a post-show discussion with the cast, and each school group will receive additional educational resources including our Play Guide.

For more information or to schedule a group for one of our student matinees, contact Kelsey Leigh Ervi, Associate Artistic Director, at 972-450-6277.

Community Outreach

Intersections

In the spirit of WaterTower Theatre’s mission to build community through fostering empathy and dialogue, WaterTower announces its new community engagement programming, aptly titled Intersections, as this programming is constantly exploring where our artistic work intersects with our larger community.

Intersections has two primary objectives: The first is focused on providing all of our audience members a deeper look into the artistic work on our stages, offering more context while making our work even more relevant in the lives of our audience. The second is cultivating authentic artistic exchanges across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, with the belief that the themes and human stories we put on our stages will resonate throughout the community.
