Trinity Rep continues to be a leader in arts education. Our landmark Project Discovery student matinee program, which has brought over 1.4 million students to the theater since its inception in 1966 continued online in 2020 and 2021, with students returning in-person to the theater in 2022. Other programs continue like Trinity Rep’s Active Imagination Network, which offers specially designed classes for children on the autism spectrum. Our philosophy on theater education is rooted in access, outreach, and full-bodied, whole-hearted participation. Not only do we offer regular classes for children and adults, but our teachers can be found building enthusiasm throughout Rhode Island’s classrooms, libraries, and hospitals, and the graduates from our MFA program in acting and directing can be spotted on Broadway, in regional theater, film, and television. No matter the forum, Trinity Repertory Company’s Education Department is constantly seeking new ways to innovate programming, in order to expose more diverse populations to the hands-on 21st century skills provided by an exemplary theater education.
