Igniting excitement in the arts helps to promote teamwork, creativity, and leadership. In an effort to raise awareness and excitement for theater among high school students, Crane River Theater instituted a one-of-a-kind program in our area called Backstage Workshop. This workshop gives students a backstage look at a professional production, followed by a day of hands-on workshops taught by professional artists. Backstage is the perfect way to kick-start your One-Act, Speech, and Performing Arts season with advice from professional artists and educators. Our Student Matinees bring high school students to our fall production and gives them the opportunity to speak with the actors and directors of the show about the relevant themes and topics. Be on the lookout for more valuable educational opportunities to be announced soon!
