Teaching Artist Playshops
In partnership with Triad Stage, Peppercorn Theatre at Kaleideum offers monthly Teaching Artist Playshops for teaching artists or aspiring teaching artists in the Triad region.
These sessions offer networking opportunities, hands-on activities for teaching artists to apply in their practice, and opportunities to get acquainted with local arts and arts education organizations.
Join us for our dual-city season kickoff on August 14th in Winston-Salem, and August 16th in Greensboro!
What We Do
Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA)
Performances designed for ages 4 and up, but enjoyed by audiences of all ages. Our TYA explores themes relevant to our community through verbal, movement-based, and musical storytelling. Visit our SHOWS page for upcoming TYA mainstage performances.
Theatre for the Very Young (TVY)
Performances crafted for babies and toddlers ages 0-5 and their caregivers. TVY is visually stimulating, largely non-verbal, and often includes live music, lights, hands-on props, puppetry, and dance. Visit our SHOWS page for upcoming TVY mainstage performances.
Performance-Based Field Trips
School groups visiting Kaleideum can request the add-on of a 30-minute play performed for their class. Performances are available for PreK through 3rd grade groups, and meet a variety of NCES and Common Core State Standards. READ MORE
