Virtual Field Trip

Virtual Field Trip

With theatres and schools taking a huge hit during the pandemic, Starlight is committed to finding innovative ways to keep students engaged with performing arts. Through virtual field trips and streaming opportunities, Starlight will bring Broadway to students—in the comfort of their own classroom or home learning environment!

In April, Starlight, with support from Disney, is pleased to invite community schools to participate in a free virtual field trip to the theater for an exclusive screening of NEWSIES: The Broadway Musical. In addition to the performance, the program will include supplementary materials such as access to a talkback with the Disney team who brought NEWSIES to the stage, a companion study guide and a dance tutorial featuring iconic choreography from the show.

NEWSIES will stream through Disney’s virtual screening platform April 5-30. Eligible schools must serve grades 6-12 and must have a student population in which at least 50% qualify for free and reduced lunch. Registration should be submitted by a teacher or school administrator by March 22 in order to participate.
