Curious New Voices offers in-school programming to enhance youth understanding of theatre both as a field and as a craft. We specialize in high school and college aged programming.

Playwriting Workshops and Residencies
Uses writing exercises to develop the basic skills of playwriting, with emphasis on principles of character development, plot and imagination.

Adaptive Theatre Workshops
Uses basic theatre games and techniques to teach curriculum through a creative lens that caters to a variety of learning styles.

Student Matinees
Curious offers a portfolio of plays (generally student-written) that can be performed at your school with limited set-up for a broader student conversation on a relevant social issue by a playwright that resonates with the students.

For more information, contact Education Director Dee Covington, dee@curioustheatre.org.

“When my students, as freshmen or sophomores, have their first play read and interpreted by professional actors on the Curious Theatre stage, it changes their writing lives… Dee Covington draws out of them exceptionally mature characters, concepts, and structures,  which through writing and revising, become the plays we see each year.” – Betsey Coleman, Colorado Academy

Dee Covington has a semester-long residency at Colorado Academy that culminates in staged readings of student works at our Curious Theatre Company location.


Student Matinees
Students venture to Curious Theatre Company’s intimate theatre space located in The Golden Triangle to experience live professional theatre, followed by a talkback with the artists.

Each Curious production offers the opportunity for student matinees that ignite conversations. These can be connected to curriculum as well as a wider social relevance.

To book, contact Community Engagement Organizer Jeannene Bragg, jeannene@curioustheatre.org.
