Queensland Theatre works closely with our state's educators to broaden and enhance the opportunities for schools to access the Company, with opportunities both on and off the stage.
Artist in Residence
Artists in Residence (AIR) is a flexible program that has been designed for schools to access professional artists and workshops that are connected to the curriculum.
Student Pathways Program
For students in Years 10–12, this week-long program offers the chance to engage with a range of departments at Queensland Theatre, showcasing the different career pathways the arts in general can offer. Students will develop a detailed and authentic understanding of the responsibilities of these various roles and have the opportunity to apply their learnings through a series of hands-on, practical tasks.
Applications are now open for the April 2021 program.
The Scene Project
Queensland Theatre’s largest Education offering, The Scene Project encourages drama students throughout the state to engage in the creative process of performance, from rehearsal through to presentation.
Digital productions for regional schools
In a first for Queensland Theatre, we are offering digital recordings of Taming of the Shrew and Return to the Dirt exclusively to regional classrooms. Both productions are part of our top picks for schools and have direct curriculum links.
A lovely, rich learning experience for the students...it’s so much what Queensland schools and drama teachers need to support them.
