Professional Development

Dramatic Connection Professional Development Workshops

Educators with valid school identification may attend SCT's free Educator Preview Evening. Join us every Tuesday before the opening night of each new play this season, for workshops, special guest speakers, refreshments, and fun!

Begin your evening at our Dramatic Connection Workshop where SCT Teaching Artists share lesson exercises that explore the themes, subjects, and style of the play while engaging in student-friendly kinesthetic learning. A special guest speaker connected with the show will also join teachers for an informal Q &A. We've had playwrights, directors, composers, and designers connect with our local educators and provide an inside view of the play no one else gets to see! Workshops include resource packets with lesson plans and a show poster. 

Following the workshop, head into our beautiful theatres to see a sneak preview of the performance before it opens to the public! Educators are allowed to bring one (1) guest with them for both the workshop and the performance.

Educators are eligible for earning 3 clock hours for attending BOTH the workshop and performance during the season.


Dramatic Connection Workshop / Special Guest Speaker from 5:45 - 6:45 PM.

Preview Performance begins at 7:00 PM; The lobby will open at 6:30 PM for those unable to attend the workshop.

Partnership Programs

Bringing Theatre into the Classroom (BTiC)

Make every subject come alive. Join us for an engaging, fun, five-day intensive summer workshop that will teach you ways to integrate drama into your entire curriculum. First-hand involvement allows time to test ideas and build them into workable, practical units. Teachers have the opportunity to “try out” curriculum in a supportive environment and walk away with an extensive resource notebook. Teaching artists will follow-up this experience by spending five hours in your classroom during the coming year. Clock hours and university credit are available. Click here for more information and to apply.

"Thank you for all the amazing things I learned at the workshop. You made all those risk-taking activities more comfortable." - 8th grade teacher in Seattle

“My own learning has benefited through years of being fortunate enough to have SCT professional development at our school.  This year, I had the kids act out a sequence of events from a nonfiction text with me.  Their understanding increased because I had an engaging way to review the text.  That is all thanks to my learning from the SCT Teaching Artists.”3rd Grade Educator
