All Activations

We believe everyone should have access to the performing arts and the opportunity to deepen their connection to all art forms, so we are excited to add free Activations that are directly tied to this season's programming! These public events include community activities and educational programs that directly engage the artists and their creativity beyond the stage. Activations may be onsite, offsite or digital offerings that welcome our artists and audiences to learn, creatively connect and journey together.

Learning Guides
Dive into The Broad Stage’s Learning Guides to read about the artist's inspiration for creating their shows and the topics they are investigating. Families, students, educators and parents can all use these guides to incorporate dance, music and theater into their classrooms or homes in inventive and experiential ways. Offered for select performances each season. CLICK HERE for available Learning Guides 

Student Matinee Program
The Student Matinee program makes music, dance and theatre performances accessible to students and provides Learning Guides specifically created for each performance. Professional Development workshops for educators are focused on each matinee and provide a collaborative and supportive learning space for the development of arts integrated lesson plans.

The Broad Stage’s new artistic chapter as a commissioner and producer of new work includes REVEAL, a series of on demand and live digital events, sharing exclusive footage, conversations, discussions and performances that highlight the artists’ transformational practices in action as they develop their commissioned works. REVEAL is curated in collaboration with the artists and available to our audiences for free. CLICK HERE to visit the REVEAL page.
