Education and Outreach

The Fulton’s education and outreach programs for people of all ages are designed to foster thought and sensitivity; evoke wonder and delight; ignite an imaginative spark; and, above all, celebrate the human spirit. These programs include:

Fulton Academy of Theatre

We offer training in the theatre arts for students of all ages, backgrounds and experiences. The Academy of Theatre brings year-round theatre arts classes to pre-K to adult at all levels of experience. Visit the Fulton Academy of Theatre page for information on upcoming classes.

Professional Training Programs

Apprenticeship, internship and volunteer opportunities for emerging professionals to apply skills acquired in the high school and university setting to a professional institution, to build upon those skills and to learn new ones.  Click here to learn more.

Teen Lounge Performances

In addition to our Teen Conservatory, each second Thursday of the Fulton’s Premier Mainstage Series, teens have an opportunity to connect with member(s) of the Fulton’s Creative Team to discuss the current production and the unique challenges they faced mounting it.  For more information click here.

For Schools and Educators

Fulton Theatre brings the theatre arts to students through productions and artists-in-the-classroom workshops and residencies. Fulton presents special School Day Matinees during school hours. We provide study guides and post-show discussions as requested, as well as pre- and post-show workshops. Bridges is a comprehensive critical literacy program offered in three formats:  Neighborhood Bridges (grades 2-9), Building Bridges (ages 3-6) and Afterschool Bridges (grades 1-8).  Bridges employs storytelling, creative drama, dance, music and puppetry to transform young people into storytellers of their own lives.  The Pennsylvania High School Drama Festival is a day of 30-minute high-school performances on the historic Fulton Theatre stage with adjudication and pre-festival workshops by Fulton teaching artists at participating schools.  A one hour interactive Fulton Theatre Tour helps students to understand the process to create theatre and inspires them to be engaged theatre participants!
