BLACK NATIVITY by Langston Hughes
We're creating new theatre experiences for our young friends to discover Black history, literature, STEM, and social-emotional and character education lessons. This is how we challenge, educate and delight young adult theatre audiences. Arts integration differs from traditional education by its inclusion of both the arts discipline and a traditional subject as part of learning. The goal of arts integration is to increase knowledge of a general subject area while concurrently fostering a greater understanding and appreciation of the fine and performing arts.
