Each season, approximately 14,000 students and their teachers are invited to The Broad Stage to see extraordinary artists in theatre, music, dance and media. We serve students from local school districts to develop and inspire early engagement in the arts.

Professional Development is provided to educators for free in association with all arts-based Student Matinees. Workshops typically take place one month before each Student Matinee to support classroom arts integration and increase skill sets in each artistic genre.

All Student Matinee offerings are supported by educator resources, such as California State Standards-based Study Guides, which include pre/post-show activities, student worksheets and connections to related resources and websites. Study Guides are crafted in collaboration with teaching artists and classroom teachers as part of The Broad Stage’s Teaching Artist Cohort.

Study Guides associated with the 18/19 Student Matinees can be found by selecting from the grade list above. Past arts-integrated study guides can be found in the library below.

The Teaching Artist Cohort is a learning collective made up of select educators and artists participating in this season’s Student Matinee program. The cohort works in collaboration with curriculum specialists and the Education & Community Programs staff, to generate arts integrated curriculum and deliver professional development workshops to K-12 educators.
