 Secondary Theatre Institute

 The JMU Secondary Theatre Institute focuses on theatre as a collaborative art through a series of hands-on workshops that explore acting, directing, devising, and dramaturgy. During the week, we consider how to use drama and theatre pedagogies to build community, deepen skill development in the art form, and engage students through story. Tools and strategies taught in this session serve both secondary classroom educators and extra-curricular theatre directors. Graduate and Continuing Education Credit is available.
