October 10 - October 12, 2019
There will also be IB DP training at this workshop – Category 1 and Category 2. For teachers interested in attending IB training, whether bringing students or attending alone, please visit the New York IB workshop webpage.
Students will take part in 2 master classes, each lasting 90 minutes.
Moment Work with Tectonic Theater Project and Beijing Opera with Chinese Theatre Works.
Professional development and learning (PD&L)
We invite all teachers/chaperones not taking part in IB training to take part in two PD&L workshops at no additional cost.
Either Moment Work with Tectonic Theater Project or Beijing Opera with Chinese Theatre Works.
All participants will attend two professional theatre performances.
Be More Chill at The Lyceum Theatre.
Based on the novel by Ned Vizzini, Be More Chill is the story of Jeremy Heere, your average, nothing-special teenager at Middleborough High in nothing-special New Jersey. That is, until the day he finds out about “The Squip.” Thus begins a journey that pits Jeremy’s desire to be popular against his struggle to remain true to his authentic self.
And To Kill a Mockingbird at the Shubert Theatre.
The world premiere of Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin’s new play, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher (Oslo, The King and I), comes to Broadway in a production starring Jeff Daniels, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Will Pullen, and Gbenga Akinnagbe. Published in 1960, Harper Lee’s debut novel To Kill a Mockingbird was an immediate and astonishing success. Now, for the first time ever, Harper Lee’s open-hearted dissection of justice and tolerance in the American South will be brought vividly to life on the Broadway stage.
