ABOUT THE REPERTORY THEATRE OF ST. LOUIS

Each year The Rep provides arts and lifelong learning programs to engage audiences in the making of theatre and its value in everyday life. These programs, for K-12 students and adults of all ages, help the community make meaningful, personal connections between the arts and their own lives through theatre. 

 

The Rep offers a broad array of learning and community engagement programming, including but not limited to: discounted Lifelong Learning Matinees for student and senior groups on weekday mornings, a performance and tech summer camp program, community presentations about the making of theatre, touring Theatre for Young Audiences productions, civic conversations and post-show discussions, and an in-school storytelling residency program for students in grades K-12.

STORY 2 STAGE

In 2020, The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis’s Learning and Community Engagement Department began the journey of reimagining programming during a time of great uncertainty and change. Story 2 Stage was launched as a pilot program in the fall of 2021, serving middle and high school students at Grand Center Arts Academy in St. Louis, Missouri. This 10-session residency program unlocks the power of storytelling by mining lived experiences, imaginations, and aspirations. The innovative, world-building curriculum, designed for learners of all ages, leads to the development of youth creating their own fully realized plays.
