POP Tour

Due to COVID-19, we are pleased to be able to offer this year’s Performance Outreach Program (POP) Tour, Pick Me Last, in a virtual format.

One of La Jolla Playhouse’s signature Education programs, the Performance Outreach Program (POP) Tour, is an annual world-premiere, Playhouse-commissioned production that brings the magic of theatre to San Diego classrooms. Launched in 1987, the POP Tour can be accessed by schools, libraries and community centers. Prior to each performance, a Playhouse teaching artist visits each school, either in person or virtually, to engage students in an interactive workshop that explores issues and themes at the core of the play. The Playhouse also provides schools with an interactive standards-based engagement guide that enables educators to integrate the play into their curriculum, including exciting interviews with the cast and the creative team. Ideal for students in grades 3 – 6.

More information coming soon.

Student Matinees

The Playhouse offers special student matinees of selected mainstage productions throughout the school year. Study guides, pre-performance workshops and post-show talkbacks are available to prepare students for these productions. Staff development workshops are also offered to teachers prior to their school’s participation in the student matinee.

Stay tuned for the next student matinee announcement as soon as we’re able to gather in person!
