The National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest presents Shakespeare in American Communities. BTE is one of 40 professional theater companies selected to participate in bringing the finest productions of Shakespeare to middle- and high-school students in communities across the United States. This is the twelfth year of this national program, the largest tour of Shakespeare in American history.

On tour to schools, libraries and more…..

Follow us to a magical land, where fairies and puppets and dreamers tell the story of King Oberon, Queen Titania, Puck the Prankster and all of the mischief they can stir up in the woods one summer night. This show is appropriate for all grade levels and ages. Each performance is followed by a Talkback with the actors.

There is plenty of time to book our 37th annual touring show for your school, community center, library, or any venue! Contact Paula for more information.

For more information, or to book a performance, please contact BTE’s School Programs Director Paula Henry at phenry@bte.org or (570) 458-4075.

Theatre in the Classroom (TIC)

TIC tours adaptations of world folk literature and history to elementary schools, as well as middle schools, libraries, and community centers across Pennsylvania and beyond.

It serves as a tool for curriculum enhancement and a unique opportunity for students to discover the world from other perspectives.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream follows in BTE’s tradition of bringing quality theatre to young people and developing and vitalizing their imagination by involving them, through active participation in the theatrical arts.  Show are presented by actors in an animated story-theatre style followed by a lively post-performance discussion.  For schools, a comprehensive Study Guide provided prior to the schedule performance enables educators to maximize the educational value of the theatre experience by providing discussion ideas, related classroom activities, post-performance questions and bibliography.  The study Guide is provided to educators as a download from BTE’s website.

Quest staff will provide you with a safety briefing to prepare you for the activities and any safety issues you might encounter or skills you need.

Quest will provide all necessary equipment including sleeping bags, tarps/tents/ground pads, cooking gear, Carbide Lamps, rafts, boats, spray skirts, dry bags, paddles, harnesses, helmets, ropes, skis, ski boots, ice axes, crampons, wetsuits, booties, lifejackets, hardware and first aid supplies.
