The Florida Rep Education Department’s Mission: Florida Rep’s Education Department is dedicated to enriching the lives of our young people and families throughout Southwest Florida with exceptional theatre experiences; Nurturing an appreciation for theatre in our students, audience, and community; Educating and engaging young people, new artists, and adults with the high standards of performing arts training including classes, internships, and volunteer opportunities; advocating for the arts and making them accessible to all; creating lasting relationships with community partners and artists; investing new efforts to expand and improve upon existing programming; inspiring greatness in a future generation of artists and art patrons.
Florida Rep’s Education programs have grown exponentially in recent years, and reach upwards of 35,000 young people and families each year. Overseen by Education Director, Kody C Jones, the department continues to educate, excite, and enlighten Southwest Florida audiences as our popular programs thrive and new ones take shape. The five programs that act as pillars of Florida Rep’s Educational Programming are The Theatre for Young Audience Series, Camp Florida Rep, Conservatory Productions, Classes for Youth & Adults, and an In-School Residency Programming. Together these programs fulfill our mission by bringing theatre into schools in order to create a spark in students whether it be by seeing a performance or creating a connection to the curriculum through arts integration, giving children and teens with more advanced-level interest an outlet for their creativity, and creating a community that creates a dialogue with youth and adults with access to high-quality theatre.
