In-School Workshops

In the 2022/23 school year,  in partnership with local Arts Education organizations, Poway OnStage will provide in-person workshops to add-on to Live or Virtual Field Trip experiences.  These workshops are expertly designed to deepen understanding and increase engagement with the content and themes presented in the Field Trip experiences.


In March of every year, Poway OnStage schedules workshops with Missoula Children’s Theatre Educator/Directors that serve more than 600 local 3rd grade students with an in-school Musical Theater Experience.  These dynamic workshops are aligned with California State Visual and Performing Arts Standards and include acting skills, improvisation, teamwork and more.
