In celebration of Theatre In Our Schools (TIOS) Month (declared by the American Alliance for Theatre and Education and the Educational Theatre Association), Appalachian State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance is holding a day of theatre workshops in Boone, NC for high school students and teachers. The workshop sessions are for a variety of interests and ability levels, and are taught by professionals with graduate level training in theatre. You do not have to be a “theatre person” to attend. Teachers may arrange for professional development or continuing education credits with prior approval from their local educational agencies.
Theatre In Our Schools (TIOS) is a month-long national event reaching thousands of students, educators, actors, musicians, administrators, and supporters to increase public awareness of the broad social impacts of youth theatre. TIOS month features performances, classroom activities, student playwriting and video contests, and regional conferences designed to spread the word about the powerful effects drama and theatre have on youth development.
