Lyric First Stage is The Lyric Stage’s summer program for enthusiastic young artists who want to develop their theatrical skills by collaborating with professional mentors in a professional environment.
The City Stage program is designed to expose students at all levels to theater as a part of their regular curriculum. City Stage is based on the Performance Cycle, created by the Arts Literacy Project at Brown University, and engages students in creative drama, scripting, and acting-out of narrative that enable them to analyze, interpret, and deeply experience plays, poetry, memoirs, and fiction. Through City Stage, students develop theatre and language arts skills and create art in alignment with state curriculum standards. We offer a variety of versions of City Stage to elementary, middle, and high schools in Boston. For the 2019-2020 school year, City Stage is confirmed to be at five Boston Public Schools: Nathan Hale Elementary School and Orchard Gardens in Roxbury; Thomas J Kenny Elementary School in Dorchester; William McKinley Elementary School in the South End; and Joseph P. Tynan Elementary School in South Boston. We will work with approximately 800 students through these BPS programs.
