2013/14 School Performance Application
TheatreSquared is excited to partner with the University of Arkansas Department of Education Reform to offer free performances of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol and William Shakespeare's Hamlet for qualifying school groups in grades 7-12.
School groups of up to 30 attendees (including one adult chaperone) are invited to apply. Multiple groups from the same school are welcome to apply, but must submit a separate application for each group.
To allow more time for teachers still preparing applications, the deadline to apply for free tickets to A Christmas Carol (offered in December 2013) has been extended by one week until October 8, 2013. The deadline to apply for student tickets to Hamlet (offered in April and May 2014) has been extended until November 1, 2013.
So that every group that applies will have equal chance of attending, groups will be selected by random lottery and notified of their inclusion within two weeks of the respective application deadlines. (Groups not selected to attend together will receive coupons for free tickets to any TheatreSquared performance for every student in the group.)
Please apply for only one production — either A Christmas Carol or Hamlet. Please only apply to attend a production if you can commit to attending.
The UA Department of Education Reform is sponsoring these free performances as part of an innovative study on student experiences with live theatre. To help make this project possible, all school groups that apply will also be asked to participate in a survey during the spring 2013 semester.
