EDUCATION MATINEES – 2019-2020 Season

Student Matinees

While Park Square’s physical stages are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, our commitment to providing educators and students with theatre resources that enhance and enliven their education remains strong.

In normal times, Park Square serves student audiences through multiple productions on two stages – our 348-seat Proscenium Stage and 200-seat Andy Boss Thrust Stage. Our award-winning education program serves 7-12th grade students with weekday performances of both literary classics and cutting edge contemporary theatre.

In addition, our Immersion Days and Theatre Ambassadors program create unique opportunities for students to learn from exceptional teaching artists in theatre workshops and to talk with cast members, directors, and designers.

We eagerly anticipate the time we can return to this level of programming. In the meantime, we hope you will explore some of the online content Park Square has to offer!

TEARS OF MOONS
Streaming Feb 1-28

By Antonio Duke
Directed by Ellen Fenster

This powerful and poetic solo show bears witness to the historic pervasiveness of violence against Black people and its role in our collective history. Both personal and expansive, Tears of Moons interweaves African spiritual figures and mythology with Greek epic theatre to reckon with the past and share a vision of strength.

THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK
Streaming Mar 1 – May 31, 2021

By Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett
Directed by Ellen Fenster

In the Spring of 2021, Park Square will resume streaming of our digital production of The Diary of Anne Frank. Called “the very first Zoom-based coup de théâtre” by the Wall Street Journal, this production brings our 22 year classic to the digital stage.

In this account of eight Jews hiding in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam, Anne Frank emerges from history as an inspiring and intensely gifted young woman. Your students are sure to be moved by this important story of a young woman whose imagination and hope were not stifled by her confinement. The hiding and arrest of the Frank family will help bring the realities of the Holocaust more directly into your classroom.
