What teachers are saying about the Matinee Series for Students and Families:

-JoAnn McLaughlin,
Smoky Mountain High School
"There is so much to learn in terms of culture and theater etiquette just by attending a live theater performance as opposed to film. I have had students say, 'This is just like a movie only you're really there!' They are often amazed by the skills of the actors, dancers, set, costume, and light designers. It makes them aware of the many arts involved in producing a play. If they like to build things or play with color, they suddenly see that there is a livelihood in the performing arts towards which they could aspire.  The quality of the performances is superb. That alone teaches them what 'quality' is. Every production we have attended has sparked excited and surprising discussion. I wish I could bring students to every show."
-Becky Stone,
Vertias Christian Academy
"Besides offering a wide range of low-cost, entertaining, and engaging live performances that are relevant to the curriculum, the DWT enables teachers to expose to professional theatrical productions students who might not normally have the opportunity to have this enriching arts experience."
-Bill Feste,
Owen Middle School
"As I return to the classroom every year, one of the first things on my 'to do' list is to check the DWT website and see what's offered for student groups for the year.  I make my reservations early.  The DWT provides a great service to educators!"
-John Hall,
Artspace Charter School
