Book-It Repertory Theatre’s Arts and Education Program is dedicated to inspiring people of all ages to read. The five components that comprise our program include:
- tours of a diverse range of stories to schools, libraries, and community venues throughout Washington State
- long-term residencies in schools
- teacher professional development
- low-cost student matinées of Book-It’s mainstage shows
- Post-college internships
The Book-It Style® helps students connect with books on multiple levels as they ask questions, exchange ideas, and make meaning our of what they read, see, and hear–all while being “up on their feet.” The entire program is closely aligned with research-based reading instruction, Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts, and state standards in theatre.
All our work is adapted in the unique Book-It Style®, where the narrative is brought to life by the characters in the story.
