Gemini Theater Company offers three different options in our Educational Outreach Program so we can best fit your needs for fun, interactive theater productions and workshops for students Pre-K through 12!

You will see that all workshop and production options have suggested grade-levels with their descriptions – this is to better help you decide what program is best for your students. We are also happy to build an “Outreach Package” to suit your needs if you are seeking a program for several different age-groups within your school or organization. Please look at what we have to offer and feel free to call us with questions about what we can do for you! We will add new shows as the season progresses, so please check back to see what’s new!

Visit the Gemini Theater

Your students or group can book your own Gemini Performance for a special weekday “matinee” performance during the school year. During your visit, your students will see one of our interactive performances, meet the actors after the show, and participate in theater “games” that we use in our classes and camps. You may bring lunches to enjoy during a break after the show or theater games – lunch space provided through our community partners. The theater seats 115 people, so we are perfect for schools who want to take an entire class to a theater experience. There is convenient bus drop-off in front of the building, so no students should need to cross a street or walk in the elements to enjoy a show!

Acting Workshops

We know that teachers and parents often have to spend a lot of time trying to find assembly programs for all students in a school and not just one or two grade levels. We have developed a workshop program that allows us to visit your school and work with your students and teach them traditional acting games and improvisation sketches in a casual, fun setting. Workshops can be an afternoon visit or a multi-visit program that takes place during or after regular school hours. Prices for workshops vary based on number of students, the type of program you would like, and the length of the total workshop. Our staff will be happy to design your workshop to suit your needs and budget!
