Artists In School Residencies
Quest Theatre's Artists in School Residency program provides schools with an interactive week-long theatrical experience where a team of artists facilitates the creation of an original production that includes everyone.
When working with Elementary schools, all grade levels including Kindergarten are incorporated and when working with Jr. and Sr. High Schools we typically work with drama classes or a specific grade level.
The details of a residency are determined in coordination with the school to best suit its unique needs. A Quest residency easily works along side regular classes and can be adapted to accommodate 4-day weeks.
