Schools & Educators

First Stage serves as Wisconsin's leader in arts-in-education programming. We pride ourselves on offering high-quality lessons that enrich literacy skills and enhance learning across the entire curriculum.

Our dynamic Theater in Education programs promote active learning in our schools and community, facilitating over 1,500 workshops in the 2019/20 School Year. We work with children of all ages in classrooms and through community organizations each year, bringing arts to life in classrooms and supporting Common Core Curriculum. Our Education team has decades of experience with drama-based lessons in Literacy, Arts-Integration, Theatre, and much more.
