Theatre in Our Schools


Educational Theatre Association. https://www.schooltheatre.org/home American Alliance for Theatre & Education. http://www.aate.com/ International Thespian Society. https://www.schooltheatre.org/internationalthespiansociety/home

The Educational Theatre Association and the International Thespian Society have partnered with the American Alliance for Theatre & Education (AATE) to sponsor Theatre in Our Schools, a campaign designed to raise public awareness of the impact of theatre education and draw attention to the need for more access to quality programs for all students. TIOS presentations and advocacy may happen anytime in schools, theatres, and other public spaces. However, we recognize and promote March as the official TIOS month, with a series of community- and school-based events and celebrations nationwide.

The goal of TIOS month is to not only raise awareness inside the school walls, but beyond and into the community; to share the story of the importance of school theatre with leaders, influencers, policymakers, and all community members.

Please use the documents, messages, and graphics found on this page to create your own TIOS plan.
