Homeschool days 2022

The Next Homeschool Day is October 13, 2022

 

Update 9.10.2022

Tickets for this performance of The Tempest are sold out. However, there is still availability for the workshop with Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library!

 

Ships and Shipwrecks—this nautically themed day is designed to create a cross-curricular experience for our homeschool families.

This Fall we are partnering with the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and their workshop—Dazzle Away the Shipwrecks: How did paint help win WWI?

Discover how painting geometric designs on ships, tanks and trains became the first major form of technology camouflage with the education staff at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library. Learn the art of dazzle paint and see if you can make a ship “hide in plain sight” using art techniques similar to landscapes on stage backdrops, and discover who created these designs that led to the art of camouflage in the military as we know it today.

You can mix and match your show and workshop tickets to fit your group as needed.

There will be a break after the show for lunch. The Woodrow Wilson Gardens will be open for picnicking (20 N. Coalter St) and there are many eateries around downtown. We recommend Baja Bean, Remedy Burger, Hotel 24, and Pampered Palate for a quick lunch.

We ask that all participants for the workshop are back at the Playhouse by 1:50 PM.

ASC welcomes students aged 7 and up for performances and 10 and up for the workshop.

Participants will learn the art of dazzle painting on model ships—please consider wearing clothes you do not mind getting paint on or bringing an art shirt.

No, but we do ask that you observe from the Playhouse seats.

Our Shakespeare Titles typically run in the 2.5 hour range, while our non-Shakespeare titles range from 90 minutes to 2+ hours. A more specific run time is available shortly after the show opens by calling our Box Office.
No matter the title, Shakespeare’s language often includes a racy joke or bawdy comedic bit—and, if it’s a history or tragedy, there will be a sword fight and at least one character is very likely to die. While we welcome children aged 7 and up to the Playhouse, appropriateness of the content is at the parent or guardian discretion. For a more in-depth look at the shows, though it may not be the most scholarly answer, Wikipedia often has a detailed synopsis of the plays (with, of course, plenty of spoilers).
