New City Stage Company prides itself on bringing exhilerating theatrical performances to
students to not only entertain them but also to enhance the learning process, whether they be
studying theatre, history, psychology or any other subject. The 2012-13 offers several
opportunities to bring high school and college students into the theatre for a unique perspective
and memorable experience.
All school groups are entitled to the following benefits, no matter what the size:
Complimentary study guides
These guides include history of the play and events related to the play and the context, as well as critical questions. Arrangements should be made at least 48 hours ahead of time if they are to be picked up at the theatre or week ahead of time if you would like them before the performance.
The study guide for RFK will focus more on the life of Robert F. Kennedy than the play itself while the other guides will focus on the issues brought up by the subject of the plays and their theatrical value
Meet & Greets or Q&A sessions with cast and creative team
Members of the cast and the director, as well as professionals from various fields for discussions post-performance for your school. These can be tailor made for the age of your group and cirriculum.
Use of event space
If your school group is traveling from outside the city limits and would like to use our space for your lunch time or other group activity, we will be happy to accommodate you at no cost if the space is available. Even if your school is local, we can provide you with the convenience of our facilities, with at least 48 hours notice.
Please contact Special Event Coordinate Danielle.Fredane@NewCityStage.org for more information.
The minimum time to let us know that you would like to use our facilities is 48 hours notice.
Behind the scenes experiences
If you would like your school group to see what it's like behind the scenes, get a tour of the theatre space, see how the lights and sound work, or just understand what ot takes to put a show together, New City can provide you what that experience.
We can custom arrange a behind-the-scenes experience appropriate for your school group's age, as well as the amount of time you have.
Please contact us at least one week in advance to make arrangements.
All general group inquiries should be made to the Box Office at (215) 563-7500 or to
Box.Office@NewCityStage.org so that someone from our team can help you make your visit
pleasant and appropriate for your school group.
