Broadway Theatre League strives to maintain a level of excellence in everything we do, and none more so than with our Student Outreach Program.
Our Outreach programming is specifically geared towards celebrating the young mind and bringing theatre to a younger audience that includes an educational component. These professional touring productions will take students and on an entertaining, educational and culturally diverse trip that is sure to please! We believe the theatre, and more specifically, live theatre can open up a child’s mind to a world of performance, choreography, music, drama, and culture, possibly all at one time and in one sitting. We believe we can make a difference in a child’s life and make learning fun.
Most of our Student Outreach Shows include free shows for Schools/Homeschool Groups during the school day and a free family performance in the evening! Learn about our upcoming Free Student Outreach shows below!

All the animals in the jungle know their own special dance, but Gerald the Giraffe can’t seem to move without a clumsy step. But with the help of a wise cricket, he finds his own song, and dances to the beat of his own drum! In this stage adaptation of the beloved children’s book, with puppets, African rhythm, and lots of dancing, Gerald learns that his differences are what make him special.
Produced by Wishing Star Productions, a professional musical theater touring company based out of Fort Worth, TX! Specializing in family-friendly shows for all ages to enjoy and is currently touring nationwide.
How it works
- Sign up – you will need to sign up your school group and select your preferred performance. Please note that the 12:30 performance is typically less crowded and we prefer homeschool students to sign up for this show. The 9:30 performance fills up quickly
- School Visit – our Education Director, David Herriott will reach out to you to provide you with study guide materials as well as set up a school visit. He will visit your classroom to get your students ready to attend live theatre and learn more about the show and what to expect
- Chaperones/ Ratio – we ask that you have a 10:1 student to adult ratio
- Buses and Parking – David Herriott will send you detailed bus drop off information. It sometimes varies slightly per show based on other events happening in the building. Typically, buses will drop students off and pick them up in front of the Concert Hall.
What to expect when you arrive
When your group arrives, you will be greeted by BTL staff and ushers that will direct your group into the Concert Hall area. Groups are seated first come, first served, starting at the stage and working back. We will use the balcony after the floor area is full. We ask that students stay in line and remain with their groups, and use the restroom with a chaperone.
After the show is over, we ask that all groups remain in their seats and listen to further instructions from the stage area. Groups will be released in a designated direction/ doorway based on bus pickup location.
At BTL we do our very best to keep groups as organized as possible while keeping all students safe while having a great time at the theatre!
