School Outreach

  • In celebration of Theatre In Our Schools (TIOS) Month (declared by the American Alliance for Theatre and Education), Appalachian State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance is holding a day of theatre workshops in Boone, NC for high school students and teachers.  The workshop sessions are for a variety of interests and ability levels, and are taught by professionals with graduate level training in theatre. You do not have to be a “theatre person” to attend. Teachers may arrange for professional development or continuing education credits with prior approval from their local educational agencies.
