EDUCATION PROGRAM

BROWN'S MART EDUCATION PROGRAM

Brown's Mart is committed to supporting educators in encouraging their students to develop an appreciation of the Performing Arts. Live performance has the ability to enhance a student's learning by bringing stories to life and providing deeper insights into the work.

Our mission, through the Brown's Mart ED program is to be accessible to all school community groups with selected theatre productions that support and complement the Northern Territory school education curriculum. The syllabus text selection process for the Brown's Mart ED program is done in consultation with secondary school English and Drama teachers.

Educators will be invited to select from the following scripts, in order of preference, for presentation in our 2018 season:

  • The Crucible by Arthur Miller

  • Equus by Peter Shaffer

  • The Female of the Species by Johanna Murray-Smith

  • The Messenger by Markus Zusak


Venue:   Brown's Mart Theatre 
Duration:  TBA (will include a 30min Q&A)

PERFORMANCE DATES:  

At this stage dates are still to be confirmed for March 2018.

Evening performances for the general public will also be scheduled.

Brown's Mart will provide educational resources such as teacher notes and briefings, highlighting specific curriculum links and professional learning opportunities relevant to the needs of teachers.
