The Backstory program is a live, interactive and creative history lesson for upper elementary students through adults. Actors visit classrooms and other venues to bring historical characters to life. Audiences have the unique opportunity to interact with the character following the performance.
Roughly 45 minutes in length, each performance includes a talkback with the actor(s). Our helpful study guide supports further classroom exploration.
Pre-or post-show sessions with our talented teaching artists can also be arranged.
Backstory invites students to step back in time for an interactive classroom experience with a featured historical character portrayed by a Syracuse Stage artist-in-residence.
TOURING: Spring 2019 - Check back in August for our character announcement.
