Student Matinees: Court’s Student Matinee program provides opportunities for Chicago-area high school students to experience our season through a series of deeply discounted weekday performances. Each matinee is enhanced by pre-performance Learning Guides and post-show discussions with cast members that invite students to consider classic stories in a new light.
Artists-in-the-Schools: Court Theatre’s Artists-in-the-Schools (AIS) residency program pairs an experienced Teaching Artist with a South Side school in a long-term partnership. Through dramatic explorations of literature from across the Black diaspora, and a cultivation of performance tools, students deepen their artistic appreciation and develop fundamental skills in literacy, collaboration, and self-esteem.
Learning Guides for the Classroom: Our Education Department carefully crafts a Learning Guide for each production in Court’s season. These robust web-based explorations feature articles, video content, and classroom exercises designed to immerse students and scholars alike in the world of a play. Our Learning Guides offer excellent pre- and post- show engagement opportunities when paired with a visit to one of our Student Matinees, and provide a closer look into our work for theatre enthusiasts and scholars alike.
