Study Guides

In 2014, study guides will be available for Cabaret, The Philadelphia Story, The Charity that Began at Home and Arms and The Man. Our theatre professionals compile history, contextual information and activities that help you create lesson plans to draw your students into the world of the play.

We’re creating new videos, interviews and resource materials all the time.
