Send BTG to Your School!

Beginning in October and continuing through the school year, BTG’s Artists-in-Residence perform an original play at dozens of venues throughout the region. These well-crafted productions are appropriate for elementary, middle, and high school students. Designed to introduce students to the excitement of live theatre, a question and answer session follows each performance. During the 2019–2020 school year, BTG’s touring performance of Pirates Past Noon: A Magic Treehouse Adventure by acclaimed children’s book author Mary Pope Osborne toured to over 20 different venues, reaching approximately 5,000 people.
