What is the Student Series?

As part of Asolo Rep’s long-running Access to the Arts program, Student Series provides a menu of Asolo Rep’s world-class productions, made available to stream to classrooms, virtual learning students, homeschool students, and university classes.

 

These “Asolo Rep Classics” are chosen for their relationship to the curriculum; the Asolo Rep Education & Engagement team has designed learning opportunities that encourage students to explore each story in interactive and reflective ways, provoking thought and creating discourse.
