Where do you spend your summer? When the weather is warm and the sun is shining, there’s no place we’d rather be than at the Goodman. And here are 5 of our Education Team’s most exciting moments from Summer ’22 to prove it.
1. Students returned for the first in-person session of PlayBuild and the Musical Theatre Intensive since August 2019 and spent six weeks honing their skills as performers, creators and citizens of the world.
2. Fourteen scholars from Rainbow Push Coalition’s STEM and Sports camp joined us in the Alice for Stage Chemistry lesson exploring how scale and ratio are used to design and build our sets.
3. The Summer 2022 InterGens ensemble devised an original piece of virtual theatre, which took the shape of a fictional radio show: WGEN – Conscious Radio
4. Over one hundred third agers in GeNarrations wrote and shared personal narrative stories inspired by Britta Johnson’s new musical, Life After. Listen to a selection of these stories at GoodmanTheatre.org/GeNarrations
5. Participants in PlayBuild and MTI took to the stage for an electrifying final performance, which included original scenes, powerful poetry and show-stopping musical numbers.
