    Can anyone tell me how I might find professional productions online (free) that I can assign my students to watch? Are there any theatres who are giving educational permission to watch any productions they might have in their archival collection? Since most theatres aren't doing live performances, students have limited choices. Thanks.

    Check out the Globe theatre – they are streaming their 2019 production Romeo and Juliet until February.

    I've been getting the Fri.-Sun. NYTimes, and almost every week there's mention of a production available in YouTube. For me it's worth the subscription price. Also, there are free live Broadway shows every Friday at https://www.youtube.com/theshowsmustgoon

    Round House Theatre offers free tickets to everything for students - which includes all the virtual things we are doing right now, like the Adrienne Kennedy Festival.   Individual students can sign up through our FreePlay program - https://www.roundhousetheatre.org/On-Stage/Free-Play

    if you want a whole class to see a play virtually contact our education department at Education@RoundHouseTheatre.org and they will set you up as a virtual Student Matinee so you get one sign in for the whole class.

    Either way, you have access for several month to see the performances.  Its a series of staged readings - but filmed in our space and really quite well done.  There are also support materials with discussions by the artists available.  And Adrienne Kennedy's work is a great way to bring diversity into the classroom and have rich conversations about content.

    Feel free to get in touch for more info, or a pass to see if yourself (which is free to educators)

    PBS is showing several Broadway and West End shows through their "Great Performances" Series.  In addition to the free broadcasts, the shows are available on their website for a limited time.  For a unit on Commedia, I wanted to show James Corden in "One Man, Two Guvnors" but the language prevented me from doing so.
    But I plan to show my Musical Theatre and Dance Students "Holiday Inn" later this month.
