Why Book With Prologue?

WHY BOOK A SCHOOL SHOW OR WORKSHOP WITH PROLOGUE?

Every time one of us at Prologue is in a school during one of our artistsʼ performance, there is always one young face, one child whom we notice sitting still, focused, eyes fixed on the dance, or the puppets, hanging upon an actorʼs or a poetʼs every word.

That one student may not know or ever articulate what it is in that moment that holds them and it doesnʼt matter. What does matter is that every child should have the chance to sit in that place of wonder and of discovery.

Of course, there are many other reasons to book a school performance or workshop:

FOR THE SCHOOL
  • Enhances the Ontario Curriculum; injects arts into school programs
  • Each performance comes with a study guide and is followed by an engaging Q&A session (allowing your students to exchange with the artists)
  • Many performances and workshops complement each other
  • Many options in our roster promote resilience, inclusion, tolerance, diversity (a great way to start important conversations)
  • Very affordable (costing an average of $3 per student) in addition to avoiding costly off-site school trips requiring busing
  • Reduces out-of-class time
  • No need for parents’ permission to leave the school
  • Reduces liability associated with transporting students by bus
FOR THE PARENTS
  • Very affordable (costing an average of $3 per child) in addition to avoiding costly out- of-school trips requiring busing
  • Satisfaction of knowing that children are getting exposure to culturally diverse events • Reassurance that the school is committed to providing varied learning opportunities
  • Reassurance that the school is committed to providing varied learning opportunities
FOR THE STUDENTS
