Entertain. Educate.
Employ. Enhance.

These are the 4 pillars and core values that West Virginia Public Theatre seeks to achieve with every artistic venture we pursue. Each year we mount professional productions for children and families that serve as an educational and enriching experience for young theatergoers. Entertaining as our productions are, they’re matched with a range of educational resources.

For Educators

Join us for our holiday show Narnia! Interested in bringing your school to a WV Public Theatre matinee? Please fill out our School Order form below!

As part of our mission to inspire and educate, we offer a holiday show study guide to all educators who bring a group to our school matinee performances.

We distribute these guides a month before the opening matinee performance so that instructors may integrate the guide into their lesson plans prior to bringing their group to see the show.

In each guide you will find a play synopsis, a list of the play’s characters, some biographical information on the playwright, and a brief guide to theatre etiquette. We also include vocabulary lists, pre- and post-show questions for the students to consider, and fun activities for students of all ages.
