Two River Theater will continue its mission of promoting arts education as a means to both support the artist within each student and to build future audiences. Coming up, Two River will continue to inspire empathy, risk-taking and a sense of adventure, supporting academic achievement and life-long learning through the Howard Aronson Metro Scholars program, Summer Intensives, and their newest endeavor, The ART of Social Justice: Summer Studio. This new program will be a collaboration with Project Write Now and the T. Thomas Fortune Cultural Center.

"Two River Theater is full of educational possibilities this spring and summer, with classic and new programming," says Director of Education Kate Cordaro. "Application deadlines are fast approaching, so don't miss out!"

Two River Theater Summer Intensives attracts young people who want to make theater - to be in the rehearsal room or the scene shop to brainstorm ideas. They learn tangible theater skills from top-notch teaching artists who challenge and bring out the best in them. Add in the fun of meeting new creative friends who are accepting, brave, serious, as well as incredibly silly, and together they create new stories to share with audiences. Each week's performance is unique as it features the specific talents of the people in the room. You won't find another program like it! The weekly program runs July 10-28, Monday through Friday from 9AM to 4PM, with that week's performance on Fridays at 7PM. Join us for one, two, or all three weeks in the Onstage or Backstage Tracks. Full and partial scholarships are available.

The ART of Social Justice is a dynamic educator-focused collaboration that meets the moment-with social justice at the forefront. It is the perfect one-stop-shop for lesson plans and resources, with pre-show discussions and discounted tickets at Two River Theater, featured exhibits at the T. Thomas Fortune Cultural Center, and a menu of writing workshops from Project Write Now designed specifically for educators.

The yearlong program kicks off this summer with AoSJ: Summer Studio, providing educators with transformative experiences fusing writing, history, performance, and cultural awareness. We explore the intersectionality of race, gender, and class, and how educators can be agents of change not only in their own classrooms but also in the wider educational landscape. During this four-day experience, you are immersed in interactive, hands-on workshops that:

· Allow you to engage in meaningful dialogue on social justice ideas

· Reignite the writer/artist within

· Help you discover and strengthen your voice for advocacy

· Build a supportive collaborative community

The cost for this program is $350. Financial assistance is available, and payment plans and purchase orders are accepted. Spots are limited and applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Deadline is May 15,2023. Participants will earn 20 hours of Professional Development during AoSJ: Summer Studio.
