  • For Schools

    Playtime Poppy Children’s Theatre offers schools an abundance of opportunities to engage their students in theatre, as an audience member, a technical designer, or as an actor.

    Matinee Performances

    Want to share a Playtime Poppy production with your students as part of a special field trip? We offer matinee performances (by reservation only) to elementary schools and those with special needs. Teachers are given an Audience Guide filled with information about the play and its author, activities with curricular connections and resources for additional learning. This is a great opportunity for students to engage with the production! Learn more about our matinee performances and how to schedule one for your students.

    Operation Backstage!

    Looking to encourage your 3rd grade students to explore, ask questions, and learn through creative expression?  Playtime Poppy’s Operation Backstage! gives students the chance to experience life behind-the-scenes and see how a play is brought to life on stage.

    One Great Line

    One Great Line brings theatre into your 5th grade classroom. Students learn how to use the design process and explore the technical and dramatic aspects of theatre.  From one sentence of classroom literature, students create their own productions in Playtime Poppy’s One Great Line.

    Theatre Grants

    Do you want to expand the drama and performing arts programs at your school? Look into Playtime Poppy’s theatre grant.
