IN THE CLASSROOM

We are honored to serve elementary students statewide, at no cost to the schools, as part of Professional Outreach Programs in the Schools (POPS), managed by the Utah State Board of Education and funded in part by the Utah State Legislature.

Representation is the bedrock of In the Classroom, through which we enhance arts education by providing instruction on the craft and process of playwriting.
