Bringing the Words to Life residency is a school wide theatrical event where your students write a play about a theme of your choosing.  With the guidance of The Players Centre for the Performing Arts’ instructors, your young authors will create the content for your school’s big production.

This is a two week residency for grade levels 2-6, the first week is the “writing week”.  This includes story creation, poetry, dance and music.  All of the original material is collected and The Players will script it into a theatrical presentation.

The second week the Players team returns for production week to direct, choreograph, build the props and rehearse your show.  The week ends in an unforgettable school event.  Great for PTA meetings!  The Players staff will meet with the grade level teachers to decide the theme.  Those themes could include the Solar System, Habitat, Weather, Seminole Native Americans, Heroes, International, Ecology, the Environment.  When theme is determined Standards and Benchmarks will be chosen by the teacher and the Players team in collaboration.
