The St. George Theatre features educational live performances for grades Pre-K to High School. These shows are dynamic, enriching, educational and so much fun for all ages!  The live performances are performed by regional, national, and international professional touring companies, connecting the arts to the classroom curriculum. 

Teachers receive at no additional cost an arts educational curriculum which connects the performance to what students are learning in school. This curriculum addresses the five strands of the NYC Board of Educational Blueprints for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. These programs and study guides are custom planned for each performance. It has been found that discussing your visit to the St. George Theatre with your students both before and after the performance helps make the experience more significant.
