Theatre for Young Audiences Tour

The Department of Theatre and Dance is pleased to announce the tour of Luna to Austin-area schools in spring 2017. A play for all ages, Luna tells the captivating story of Soledad who has trouble making friends as she moves from school to school. She finds comfort in the company of the moon, Luna, and their magical relationship encourages Soledad to reach out to those around her.

Educators and administrators are invited to book a performance at your school by emailing UTAustinTYA@gmail.com or calling 512-471-5793. In addition to the performance, a resource guide will be provided to teachers who wish to explore the play's themes in their classrooms.

Tour Dates: March 2, 7, 9, 21, 23, 28, 30 and April 4, 6

Price: $500 per performance (up to 300 guests per performance)

School Partnerships

Our Drama and Theatre for Youth and Communities faculty often partner with schools as part of the department curriculum. We often seek school/classroom placements for student projects and facilitation, as well as partnerships to develop curriculum and new work. If you would like to collaborate with university students and faculty working in theatre education, arts integration, theatre for young audiences, or devising, please contact us at theatredanceanddance@utexas.edu.

Professional Development

The department is pleased to host the Summer Institute: Activating Learning through the Arts, a professional development program for pre-service and in-service teachers and arts educators.
