Rehearse for Reality

Theatre-in-Action provides creative strategies to prevent bullying, transform conflicts, and learn social justice skills in Vermont and throughout New England.

Theatre-in-Action simultaneously explores concepts of social justice and citizenship alongside conflict transformation strategies, using theatre techniques to practice constructing a world we are all proud to live in. We maximize our own potential by seeing potential in those around us.

“You have made an impact on all of us and I want you to know that. For me myself you gave me way more confidence and I’m not scared anymore. I hope you can come back!” – Linsey, 5th grade

Theatre-in-Action Programs include:

Exploring images of oppression with 7th and 8th graders

Bullying Prevention Workshops:  Learn interactive storytelling and drama techniques to build empathy skills, empower bystanders, encourage social and emotional learning, and promote a positive school climate. Our signature drama-integrated anti-bullying  program is available in half- or full-day workshops,  9-week, 12-week, or custom-designed residencies, and professional development in-services.   

Playbuilding Project: Creatively express yourself through dramatic storytelling! Learn the craft of devised theatre by brainstorming, creating, and performing original, issue-based plays. Available in full-day, multi-day, week-long, or multi-week sessions. Possible themes for exploration may include: high school social pressures, immigration/refugee rights, cultural competency, trans* and queer rights, women’s rights, workplace conflicts. Post-performance discussions and/or workshops can expand on themes presented. Age range: 12 – Adult.

Social Justice Training: Learn, recognize, act, and collaborate to transform your community, workplace, or school. Our stand-alone or multi-session social justice training workshop explores equality versus equity, systems of oppression and injustice such as racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, and ageism, and provides you with hands-on strategies to enact social change.
