  • One Great Line

    Get your students ready for a day of engaging theatre education with One Great Line! High school students work with elementary students to bring in-class literature to life through theatrical performances of “one great line” of literature.

    What is One Great Line?

    One Great Line is a pilot project that marries the Cedar Rapids School District’s literary programming for fifth graders and the many theatrical elements presented in great literature. This project will involve collaboration between a Playtime Poppy-contracted high school, fifth grade students, teachers and directors.

    How does it work?

    After “one great line” has been selected from the fifth grade in-class literature, the high school students will work with their high school director to design a “theatre in a box,” featuring costumes, props and the makings of a great play to travel to the elementary school.

    Together, the elementary students will breathe life into the text being taught in their classroom through playwriting and performance under the guidance of their high school mentors.
