LB RIOT: A CLASSROOM RESOURCE FOR GRADES 7-10

Encouraging young artists in grades 7-10 to cause a theatrical riot.

We want young artists and their teachers to engage with new work specifically created for them, collaborate with artists, learn new skills, respond to live theatre, and create new work. LB RIOT is designed to be used as a classroom resource and to support learning and assessment. Teachers will have flexibility to use the resources to best suit your needs, and have your students see other young artists perform.

LB RIOT includes:

– Script written specifically for young people in grades 7-10

– Unit of work for use in your classroom

– One two hour in-class Artist in Residence workshop

In addition to participating in LB RIOT you can bring your students to see a production of the play, The Final Days of Bedlam, performed by our La Boite Young Artists Company in August.

Have students work with creatives from the La Boite season? We will work with you to meet your specific class, curriculum and budget requirements. We want to support your students’ learning however we can. Get in touch.
