Field Trips

2022/23 Field Trips, Grades K–12

The Alliance Theatre will offer both in-person and virtual field trips during the 2022/23 season. 

To reserve tickets for your school group, call 404.733.4690 or email allianceschoolday@woodruffcenter.org

Alliance Theatre for Youth and Families produces developmentally appropriate shows each season. These productions adhere to the same mission statement as the Alliance Theatre adult programming, which is to set the highest artistic standards and create the powerful experience of shared theatre for a diverse audience. A major goal of the Alliance Theatre for Youth is to diminish the age gaps between us, and no other regional theatre of the Alliance’s size consistently produces the same quality of work for all age groups. These plays are chosen with an eye to the needs of school curriculum and of young people and families in our community. They are also chosen to appeal to an age range that extends beyond the target age determination of each.

Research conducted through the Woodruff Arts Center’s Multi-Visit Program in partnership with the University of Arkansas’ National Endowment for the Arts Research Lab showed students who attend multiple arts field trips have higher levels of social-emotional skills, stronger school engagement, and higher standardized test scores.

Pre/Post-Show Workshops

Interested in enriching and engaging workshops for your students that relate to your Alliance Theatre field trip? Pre/post-show workshops are a great chance to extend learning beyond the stage and can occur virtually or in-person. Pre/post-show workshops can be drama-based or literacy-based. Drama-based workshops focus on using the tools of the actor (voice, body, and imagination) to explore moments from the play. Students will act as the characters themselves, recreate scenes from the play, and/or explore central themes. Literacy-based workshops make a stronger connection to school curriculum and grade level standards. For example, students explore the characteristics and qualities of the main characters, setting, problem/solution, etc. through arts-integrated exercises. If your group would like to attend a pre/post-show workshop, please fill out the form at the link below. We recommend that you book your group's tickets to a production before initiating plans for a pre- or post-show workshop.
