Budget crises have diminished funds for the arts in schools. In an effort to fight back, Roundabout Theatre has partnered with the NYC Department of Education to establish “Education at Roundabout,” integrating aspects of theater into school curriculums.
For over 35 years, this program has encouraged students to think critically about the works they cover in a historical and social context, and provided future opportunities with internship programs and career development.
The program has been especially beneficially to bilingual students, helping them to get on track with their peers whose first language is English.
