ZEITERION PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

2019-2020 SCHOOLTIME PERFORMANCES


Promoting education is one of the core values of the Zeiterion (The Z) and an integral part of our mission. At the heart of our commitments lies the belief that learning in and through the arts can serve as a powerful tool for student achievement in the classroom and in life. This season offers a wide range of opportunities for both students and teachers to explore the arts through performances, workshops, and residencies. Education in the arts plays a central role in the development of a child; connecting them more deeply to the world and opening them to new ways of seeing it! Not only do Schooltime performances enable students to explore concepts and themes they’re studying in their classroom but they also provide an alternative pathway to learning, foster empathy and understanding, boost critical thinking skills and spark meaningful discourse. Further, access to our performances can improve vocabulary and reading comprehension, nurture cultural awareness, and develop appreciation for the power of the imagination.

ABOUT THE SCHOOLTIME PERFORMANCE SERIES The Z’s Schooltime Performance Series features performances by some of the world’s most respected and famed theatrical, dance and musical companies. These engaging CURRICULUM-BASED PERFORMANCES are designed for students in grades K-12 and incorporate an array of subjects, themes, topics and issues of relevance; reaching nearly 20,000 students and teachers each year! Shows occur during regular school hours and provide engaging learning experiences that enhance students’ knowledge of the content, create meaningful connections and foster their appreciation of the performing arts. The diversity of programs deepen, strengthen and develop children’s curiosity and creativity as well as nurture a better understanding of self, community and the world. Productions are typically between 60 and 90 minutes in length. Each performance includes a TEACHER RESOURCE GUIDE which is helpful in preparing students for an enjoyable and educational theatre experience. Included you’ll find discussion topics, resource materials, and classroom activities that extend the impact of the performance and promote learning across the curriculum. These guides can be downloaded from our website, www.zeiterion.org/schooltime-series. In conjunction with these performances, The Z often offers WORKSHOPS and IN-SCHOOL RESIDENCIES as well as POST-SHOW DISCUSSIONS with the artists and companies. Designed to enrich and deepen your students’ experience with the arts, these opportunities also excite and engage participants in the subject matter, provide greater insight, understanding, and interpretation of the content, and enhance their overall theatre experience.

Jessie is the daughter of a Political columnist from Tennessee, growing up in Washington, DC, during the early 1900s with dreams of being as important to her father as her younger brother is. When her Great-Aunt Charlotte, a longtime suffragist, comes to Washington, she introduces Jessie to the movement. Jessie begins to learn about the history of the women who started the movement, such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the new generation who have continued the fight, like Alice Paul and Lucy Burns--and those who oppose it, including her own parents. Despite their objections, Jessie soon becomes deeply involved in the Women’s Suffrage movement, comparing their fight for democracy to the one her brother Will stands for when he goes overseas as a soldier in World War I. As tragedy strikes both at home and abroad, and the battle for the vote continues to escalate, everyone in Jessie's family must face their own decisions about what they believe is right and the actions they are willing to take on this pivotal issue.

Miss Nelson Has a Field Day A Dallas Children’s Theatre production Return to Horace B. Smedley School where the Smedley Tornadoes have never won a football game. In fact, they have never even scored a single point! With such a poor record and a team that is out of control, kind-hearted Miss Nelson comes to the rescue when she enlists the help of her alter ego, the ill-tempered Miss Viola Swamp, to coach the team and whip them into shape. Considered by all to be “the meanest substitute teacher in the whole world,” Coach Swamp applies her trademark discipline to the players’ training, demanding tough exercises and no back talk. In the end, the team changes their attitude, pulls together, sharpens their skills, and manages to win the biggest game of the year.

THEATRE BEHAVIOR

Here’s how students can help:

The Z realizes that attending a Schooltime performance may be the first introduction to attending a live performance for many students. A live theatrical production is exciting and vibrant. The actors, the audience, and the backstage personnel are all part of the experience. Your students, as part of the audience, play an important role in the atmosphere of the production. Please remind your class that everyone will have a wonderful time by remembering their theatre etiquette.

• • •

It is important to remain seated throughout the entire performance. Restroom visits are best made before the show begins.

Lights Out = Quiet Time. When the lights in the theatre dim to blackout, this is a signal that the show is about to begin. Please make sure to settle down and get ready for the performance.

Cell Phones and other electronic devices are prohibited. Noises from electronic devices are highly distracting to the performers so please make sure they are turned off.

Give your full attention and energy to the performers. In return, the performers give it back to you with a better performance.

Don’t talk or whisper during the show unless you are asked. It can be disruptive to the performers.

Show the performers your appreciation for their efforts! When there are parts that you particularly enjoy, you should feel free to laugh and clap.

• • • • • •

Please do not put your feet on the seats or other furnishings. Please do not run anywhere; you and your friends can get hurt!
