Since 1973, nationally-renowned Metro Theater Company has provided exceptional arts experiences to students throughout Missouri. Our touring productions respect the intelligence and emotional wisdom of young people, inviting them into the world of theater and charging their imaginations. The themes of any Metro Theater Company work provide opportunities for meaningful learning in support of Missouri Show-Me Standards. We provide Educator Guides for teachers, as well as take-home pieces for parents. Talk-back sessions are a part of every performance, which often lead to further stimulating conversation at school and at home. Metro Theater Company can also provide classroom residencies where our teaching artists use drama and creative movement to enhance core curriculum and character education. Our violence prevention program Say Something, Do Something, now in its 10th year, utilizes theater to help young people “rehearse for life” and prepare to de-escalate violent situations in their schools and communities. During COVID-19 many of MTC’s programs are available for virtual touring, including arts-integrated workshops for classrooms and live Q&As to accompany streaming productions. Metro Theater Company honors include the Missouri Arts Award, the Kevin Kline Award for Outstanding Production for Young Audiences, and the “What’s Right with the Region” Award from FOCUS St. Louis, among others.
