Theatre for Young Audiences at Taliesin

This project offers a quality multicultural theatre program to underprivileged rural schools. The program is an extension of the annual Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) production that is part of the regular season of the Department of Theatre and Drama's University Theatre. After its regular run at the University Theater, productions are remounted in Taliesin’s Hillside Theatre and play for the rural schools in that area, which will be bussed in to Taliesin. The program is offered to these schools for free. Schools can also apply for support to offset money for buses. The whole program includes pre-performance workshops and educational materials, the performance and a follow-up workshop immediately following the performance.
