About Drama for Schools

As an initiative of the Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of Texas in Austin, Drama for Schools is part of a long and distinguished history of the University’s commitment to public schools. In addition to preparing many of the state’s theatre arts teachers, the Department regularly partners with public schools throughout the state of Texas to examine how the arts can help motivate the process of learning. Through on-going dialogues with our K-12 collaborators, we are striving to create exciting professional development workshops for educators. Working with communities to shape our training curriculum to meet their specific needs, in an effort to support the educational missions of both the University and our school partners.
