Educational Outreach Series

The 45 minute interactive presentation      engages and challenges students and is  designed to inspire STEAM (Science,     Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math)  potential in elementary aged students.  Based on a curriculum commissioned by NASA and Space Florida, Janet’s Planet invites boys and girls to ask questions to ensure that critical thinking is reinforced.  Classrooms can Skype with an astronaut to talk about the Moon Landing in 1968.

“What a grand journey you will take with  Janet’s Planet!  Studying the solar system and the galaxy is the oldest and ennobling of human activities.  Janet’s methods of presentation using verbal, visual, and       musical cognitive techniques will create an excitement among young viewers.”  Dr. Billy Hix, Professor of Science and Education, Motlow College (NASA Fellow)

MISSION:  The mission of the Theater Enrichment Arts Curriculum for Homeschoolers (TEACH) is to inspire children to dream, explore, think, and connect through imaginative storytelling onstage and in classroom workshops.  We strive to focus on a child’s well-rounded education, both emotionally and academically.

 

Producing a show brings the arts together and provides growth opportunities for all varieties of learners.  Kinesthetic learners engage their bodies through dance, linguistic learners dive into the written and spoken word, spatial learners tackle set and costume design, and musical learners revel in the show’s score.

 

A musical production provides a rich and engaging springboard for students to explore many subjects and discover connections among various modes of learning  We will have show-related activities in language arts, music, visual arts, speaking.

As you can see, our students will gain valuable life skills through their participation  in this production.

We are always looking for parent volunteers to help pull everything together.

Registration:  $30 per participant

($25 for additional participants from same family)

 

It’s the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes all find their cliques. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. The couple cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical. Although many students resent the threat posed to the “status quo,” Troy and Gabriella’s alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

 

Presented by TEACH, Theater Enrichment Arts Curriculum for Homeschoolers, this program teaches cross curriculum including language arts, music & visual arts.

Set sail with this classic comedy that boasts one of the most famous patter songs in musical theatre history. The wit and whimsy of Gilbert and Sullivan’s   classic score is suffused with a modern sensibility in The Pirates of Penzance JR.,  a swashbuckling musical journey!

Set on the rocky coast of Cornwall,       England, The Pirates of Penzance JR. begins with a group of pirates who    are celebrating the birthday of one of their own, Frederic, who has reached his 21st year. Finally having served the full length  of his required time with the pirates, he decides to strike off on his own and       become an upstanding citizen – which may even mean bringing the pirates to justice. This turns out to be a tricky prospect indeed, especially when Frederic’s freedom is called into question!
