In-School Programs

McCarter’s In-School Residencies provide an opportunity for students to experience theater in their own classrooms. All residencies are taught by experienced theater professionals and are designed to foster creative thinking, collaboration, personal agency, artistry, joy, and empathy.

Residencies range from one-day workshops to twelve-session intensive programs. All residencies are specifically designed to align with common core and NJCCC standards, and some can be adapted to focus on a variety central curricular themes.

McCarter teaching artists are in classrooms more than 100 days out of the school year, with many long-standing partnerships in Princeton, Trenton, East Brunswick, and New Brunswick. Our calendar fills up early, but we are happy to discuss options for connecting with your school!
