MTVarts Classics Series honors our cultural and literature heritage with an educational outreach to secondary students. Our productions present authentic, uncensored works by iconic American playwrights as the author intended.
The 21st century student experiencing live theatre in an educational environment has greater tolerance and improved ability to read the emotions of others, has increased understanding of plot and vocabulary, and gains an appreciation for the arts.
Measured in the lives engaged, the thoughts provoked, and the experience of seeing literature studied come to life on the stage, this is our most successful endeavor.
Coming in 2020: Arthur Miller's "All My Sons"
2020 artsIQ POSTPONED
As an all-volunteer organization and with the number of students involved, we find ourselves unable to meet the restrictions and expectations for a safe environment to host our artsIQ summer workshops and September performances. Our plan is to perform Frozen JR and KIDS in 2021.
Workshop and intensive offer a unique opportunity for hands on theatre education. Together students will embark on an arduous journey to create a live musical theatre event. Along the way their multi-tasking will build confidence, teach life skills, foster collaborative relationships, and educate the imagination. Choose one of three tracks.
Learn the basics of making theatre through acting, music and choreography instruction complete with field trip to the Memorial for a behind the scenes look at "The Sound of Music."
