Play Buffets

Middle school and high school theater teachers! Join Essential Theatre for a free, fun night of conversation and connection as we take a look at some of our favorite plays for high school audiences/students.

“So often when you’re a middle school or high school theater teacher, you’re a team of one for your whole school. The Play Buffet is a chance for theater teachers to connect with other teachers doing the same work and facing the same challenges and rewards.”

-Elisabeth Cooper, Play Buffet coordinator and Essential Theatre Education Associate

Join Essential Theatre’s Education Associates for a curated look at 4 or 5 plays of interest to high school audiences and student performers, with snippets read aloud by event participant volunteers and discussed during each session.

Event participants will be provided with information regarding publisher/related works/playwrights during each session.

Each Buffet event is approximately 60-90 minutes in length and will focus on a different theme each month.
