Theater in Focus Curriculum

Our robust Theater in Focus curriculum aligns with films of select Guthrie productions and offers an in-depth classroom experience when studying classic plays in the American theater canon. This free resource seeks to amplify subjects from literature and speech to social science and world history by exploring the context of a play and its characters.

Play guides

An excellent resource for educators, the Guthrie’s digital play guides are available for select shows each season and able to be viewed or downloaded directly from our website. Take your students on a deep dive into the world of theater, including information about playwrights and creative team, the cultural context of the show and specific details about the Guthrie production. Some play guides also include discussion questions and classroom activities you can use to activate a collaborative learning environment.
