Stage Doors

Providing Students a Meaningful Introduction to Live Theatre.
TDF’s Stage Doors is a project-based arts education program that provides middle and high school students with a meaningful introduction to live theatre. Each participating class attends a Broadway or Off Broadway performance and participates in eight in-class workshops: four workshops conducted by a professional teaching artist and four conducted by the classroom teacher. The workshops actively engage students in inquiry, creativity and community.

 TDF founded Stage Doors in 1995. Since then over 61,000 students have been introduced to the exciting world of the performing arts. 

Number of participating students: 7250
Number of participating schools: 90
