GIRL SCOUT AND BOY SCOUT TROOPS AT FIRST STAGE 

First Stage offers discounted tickets, exclusive pre-show workshops, backstage tours and more for scout troops.  

Before a troop’s trip to a First Stage performance, scouts can participate in a 45-minute pre-show workshop led by professional First Stage Teaching Artists.  Scouts and leaders will explore the themes of the play through dynamic theater exercises and interactive activities. Workshops are held at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center.  Workshops are offered as enrichment to the performance, and are not available without ticket purchase.  Scouts will attend an afternoon performance shortly after the workshop at the Todd Wehr Theater in the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.
