The New Victory offers a unique opportunity for students ranging in ages from Pre-K to 12th grade to experience live performances in the heart of New York City’s Theater District. To date, nearly 570,000 students and teachers have experienced a broad spectrum of dance, theater, music, puppetry, new vaudeville and circus productions from around the world. Many of these students experience their first ever live performance at The New Victory Theater. Committed to building impactful and long-lasting relationships with schools and youth programs through the performing arts, New Victory Education helps educators infuse creativity across the curriculum.
Partnership Program Benefits:
Daytime Performances & Post-Show Discussions
Tickets are reserved in advance via a real-time ordering process on a first come, first-served basis. After each performance, students engage with the artists just seen on stage for a moderated discussion. There is a 10:1 ratio for student and chaperone tickets.
Free New Victory School Tool® Resource Guides
The online New Victory School Tool resource guide for each production includes information about the company, the themes and art forms, and ready-to-implement, grade-appropriate activities for educators to facilitate with their students directly.
Free Classroom Workshops
Held at the school or camp facility prior to or after the performance, these sessions deepen the student’s viewing experience through active exploration of the themes and art forms they see on the stage.
Seasonal Professional Development workshops are designed to help classroom teachers and arts specialists (Pre-K to 12th grade) cultivate the skills needed to incorporate the performing arts into their lesson planning and teaching practice. Invitations for “Storytelling Through Physical Theater” will be emailed in early March.
Partner Teacher discounts are available for weeklong Creativity Seminars (Summer Professional Development Intensive). Creativity Seminar information is typically published in late spring each year.
Educator Discount on Evening and Weekend Performance Tickets
Educators who coordinate Partnerships for their site receive a discount of up to 40% off tickets to public performances at The New Victory Theater.
