Theatre in Our Schools



Thank you for raising awareness of the importance of school theatre by participating in TIOS month 2016! To learn more about the program, read this report summarizing TIOS activities.

It's not too soon to make plans for TIOS month 2017!

The Educational Theatre Association (EdTA) and the American Alliance for Theatre & Education (AATE) are partners in the Theatre in Our Schools campaign, a promotion of the value of theatre education for all students. The campaign raises public awareness of the impact of theatre education and draws attention to the need for more access to quality programs for all students.
