Programs for Students

“There is no greater gift that a person can be given than to be put in touch with his creativity. Theatre transformed my life.”

—Director Declan Donnellan, on discovering theatre as a lonely 16-year-old

Pioneer Theatre Company supports children, young adults, and college students in experiencing the wonder, stimulation and creativity of watching a compelling story unfold in front of them, whether it’s by Steinbeck, Dickens, or the irreverent Neil Simon.
