Education Outreach

Since 2001, Jobsite has worked offered student productions as well as on-site workshops and demonstrations to students from middle school to the college level. Today, we impact more than 5,000 students every year!

We also offer opportunities for our patrons to directly impact local arts education.

A Unique Experience For Your Students

With each production we offer a robust study guide that hits relevant curriculum points by grade level, extending far past theater into reading and literacy, history, and the social sciences.

Student Field Trips

Jobsite offers field trip performances for select productions, especially our annual Shakespeare production. Performed separately from our standard productions, these productions at the Straz Center are reserved for students and teachers only, where we can offer pre- and post-show visits and Q&A’s.

Workshops and Demonstrations

We offer both pre- and post-show visits to the schools, sending teaching artists involved in the production to offer custom-built workshops, demonstrations, or lectures to help further enrich the overall experience.

In addition to the workshops and demonstrations during the pre-show visits, we also include important context about the performance like information on the author, subject matter, and history about the time it was written as well as what the students should expect to see on stage and why we think it matters.

Post-show visits also include opportunities for the students to ask questions and provide feedback prior to the custom-built workshop, lecture, or demonstration that we arrange with the teachers. With these in-classroom visits we are able to work with far greater numbers of the student populations than we could bring into the theater.

Teaching artists are also available year-round for Shakespeare workshops for your school. We offer the following programs:

  • Geared towards reading comprehension and “unlocking” Shakespeare’s rich language
  • Geared for playing Shakespeare!

Student Video Library

Jobsite has a private video library and study guides available for individual classroom use that cover A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Henry V, Romeo & Juliet, and Hamlet.

Our Program History

Jobsite has worked with middle and high school as well as college-level classes since our 2001 production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged).

In 2012, we began offering daytime matinees to school groups (Fahrenheit 451, Much Ado About Nothing). In 2021 we moved this program from the 99-seat Shimberg Playhouse into the 320-seat Jaeb Theater, and as of 2024 regularly sell out all of our field trip matinees while providing hundreds of free tickets while capping the cost at $10.
