Education at Roundabout connects with students and teachers through customized school partnerships, residency programs, mentorships and workshops in the practice of professional theatrical skills, professional development workshops, internships, apprenticeships, backstage tours, talkbacks, and pre-show workshops. For each Roundabout production, Education also creates Upstage guides, which include interviews, contextual information, teacher resources and activities, and presents a schedule of Theatre Plus events, including pre-show talks every Tuesday and post-show Lecture Series and Celebrity Series events featuring a distinguished artist, scholar, historian, or critic.
