Our Residencies

If you love having your students take in 1 of our innovative productions, why not try an immersive Artist in Residency experience where our talented pool of professional theatre artists bring a show to life with your students, right in your school for a day or a week?

Acting Our Colours (K-6)

As an educator, you know how culturally diverse your classrooms are—here is your opportunity to celebrate the richness of the cultures and communities they come from with a hands-on curriculum-based live theatre experience. Depending on your school size, 3 or more energetic professional artists will work with your entire school population over this 5-day residency leading to a fantastic sharing event on the final day for family and friends! Veteran theatre educator and actor April Banigan is coordinating this program for us.

For more info on Acting Our Colours, email Residency Coordinator, April Banigan at residency@concretetheatre.ca

Treaty 6 (K-6)

This season, we are developing a brand new 1-day school residency to help you and your Elementary population explore First Nations, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) perspectives and history in an age-appropriate, theatrical and engaging manner.

A mix of Indigenous and Settler artists will work with students in their classrooms in the morning, then the whole school will gather to share some of their learnings and join together for a unifying group activity. Email bookings@concretetheatre.ca to be added to our e-newsletter for updates including pricing and availability. The pilot program will be available for a select few dates in Spring 2020, with a full tour happening in Fall 2020.

Our workshops

Crossing The Line (Classroom Workshops for Grades 4 and up)

If you are looking for something smaller and more flexible than 1 of our full productions for a Health Day, Bullying Awareness Week, or Pink Shirt Day, we have Crossing The Line, a 1-hour interactive workshop that explores bullying and what you can do about it, all in an intimate classroom setting for 1 class at a time! Taught by amazing facilitators, this workshop uses thoughtful and engaging theatrical exercises to help students learn more about bullying, what they can do to prevent it, and to get classroom discussions flowing.

  • Availability: Any point during the school year
  • Duration: 55 minutes
  • Class size: Maximum 35 students
  • Base Price: $275/workshop. Booking Discount on 3 or more workshops in 1 day

Create-A-Workshop (Classroom Workshops for Grades 4 and up)

Maybe you or your school have an emerging issue you would like to explore for a Health Day, Awareness Week or other special day. Let us create a workshop that explores your issue for you. Like Crossing The Line, Create-A-Workshop would be a 1-hour interactive workshop that explores your issue, taught by facilitators in an intimate classroom setting for 1 class at a time! The cost is slightly higher than other workshops, as we’re customizing your content. We are always interesting in finding ways to facilitate learning through new and innovative techniques, and finding ways to animate issues we may have done a play about, but haven’t dived into in a workshop setting before!

  • Availability: Any point during the school year; development time will be required.
  • Duration: 55 minutes
  • Class size: Maximum 35 students
  • Base Price: $375/workshop. Booking Discount on 3 or more workshops in 1 day
