Keeping Theatre Alive in Schools by ProQuest


According to Peter Avery, director of theatre for the NYC Department of Education's Office of Arts and Special Projects, 18 schools participated in the Broadway Junior program last year, with three or four joining the fold each year since its inception. With this in mind, Phaidra Atkinson, a drama teacher based in Salt Lake City, Utah, formed the Utah Advisory Council for Theatre Teachers (UACTT), a member organization designed to create a support system and provide mentoring for drama educators in the state. Because of its history of offering strong educational outreach, which includes an annual high school Shakespeare competition, the Utah Shakespearean Festival was asked by UACTT to be on its board.
