Countless studies have shown the power of music and theatre to not only engage students in academic material, but help them retain it. Through the creative integration of academic material, students’ retention is enhanced, not only yielding positive outcomes in course work, but building a strong foundation for their knowledge of a variety of subjects.
Red Mountain Theatre Company’s touring shows are a fun, onsite way to provide the incredible benefits of the arts to your students.
To deepen students’ experience, RMTC offers a companion study guide for teachers to use in the classroom pre- or post-performance.
