Update: A heartfelt thanks to each of the nearly 200 donors in the month of December whose combined generosity completed the match of our $75,000 grant!
We are over the moon that our Free Elementary School Tour is now part of the Professional Outreach Programs in Schools (POPS), administered by the Utah State Board of Education and partially funded by the Utah State Legislature.
This $75,000 grant requires dollar-for-dollar matching funds, the combination of which makes it possible for our Free Elementary School Tour to serve elementary schools across the state during the full school year, rather than two months each fall. That means our current Tour of FLORA MEETS A BEE by Morag Shepherd will serve 15,000 students at 72 schools from Box Elder to Garfield County, from San Juan to Daggett County!
To date, the current Tour has served 10,123 K-3 students at 46 schools. And 2,551 of them were seeing a play for the first time!
Principal Chris Whitaker, to her K-3 students at Foxboro Elementary: “I love Plan-B Theatre because not only do they have excellent actors, they are really great at teaching us things.”
We have created a new playwriting curriculum for grades K-6 in partnership with Julie Jensen and Youth Theatre at the U.
And we have launched an app to better serve teachers!
