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.

Contact First Stage to begin planning a Theater Workshop to either help your Scouts meet the requirements of a specific badge or just for fun! Teaching Artists can travel to you or space can be reserved at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center (additional fees may apply).

Bully Buster
Through Theater for Social Change, Girl Scouts will identify tactics in problem solving and practice positive conflict resolution. The Bully Buster is tailored for the age of the scouts, and is customizable to address the specific needs of the scouts' community. Scouts will develop creative and practical solutions to problems, understand the points of view of others, and inspire others to make respectful and positive choices through example.
