 Educational Theatre - Community Outreach

The Graduate Program in Educational Theatre at The City College of New York is proud to partner with Roundabout Theatre Company to create a new course for pre-service teachers and teaching artists. EDCE 4500C The Fundamentals of Teaching Technical Theatre aims to develop students’ content area knowledge and pedagogical philosophy of design and technical theatre disciplines including scenic, lighting, costume, sound, and stage management. Candidates will experience, examine, and experiment with the teaching of technical theatre disciplines for classes Pre K-12 with particular focus on urban schools. Paul Brewster, Roundabout’s Senior Manager of Education Programs, will be the lead instructor for the class. The course is divided with the first half taught at Roundabout's Education Studio and the latter half of the course provides hands on experience mentoring middle school students through a production process
at PS 161 in Halem.
