Study Guides

A comprehensive Study Guide for each production is available online. Our Guides are designed to highlight learning expectations, provide information about the content and form of the play, stimulate pre- and post-show discussion, and provide drama and music activities to complement your curriculum. You can access the Study Guides for present productions as they become available on our website, and/or consult the past season’s guides.

YPT resources are created to have a strong pedagogical grounding as well as a focus on the craft of creating professional theatre. Our Educational Services team often collaborates with academic institutions to ensure that our resources are at the forefront of research and curriculum development.
