Luna Stage has always held a deep commitment to arts education and a firm belief in the value of direct exposure to the power of live theatre and artistic collaboration. This direct exposure is a crucial ingredient for young people to learn how to tap into their own creative expression, both as a means of developing a life-long appreciation of the arts, and of defining themselves as individuals within a society.
This season, Luna Stage will be offering school-time matinees for Vita and Virginia, Mi Casa Tu Casa, and A Moon for the Misbegotten. Matinee performances are followed by talkbacks with members of the Luna staff and the creative team behind the show.
Additionally, in-classroom pre and post performance residencies are available. Research indicates that students are better able to access a performance if they’re given some context prior to viewing the play, and that the performance has a greater lasting impression upon them if they are afforded the opportunity to discuss the themes of the play in connection to their own lives following the performance.
If you are interested in arranging a school-time matinee for your class, please contact our office at (973) 395-5551.
