It's said that the best teachers possess a flair for the dramatic.
They find the story in a lesson and bring it vividly to life.
In the same way, this year's wide-ranging plays will get your middle and high-school students thinking deeply about vital lessons of history, philosophy, art and the humanities. Thrill your students with the power of live professional theatre, and give them lessons that will last a lifetime.

The Story of My Life
Music & Lyrics by Neil Bartram
Book by Brian Hill
Student Matinee: Thursdays, December 12, 2013—10:30 a.m.
"THE STORY OF MY LIFE follows the friendship of Alvin and Thomas, two men from a small town. These lifelong friends are reunited after Alvin's mysterious death. In the abstract world of his mind, Thomas struggles to write Alvin's eulogy while recounting the many turns their lives have taken since meeting as children. Alvin searches through the manuscripts and stories in Thomas' mind to lead him on a journey of remembrance. Through music and song, these two friends recount their adventures, explore their past dissonance, and ultimately discover what is at the base of every strong friendship...love." -Music Theatre International
