Online Learning Labs

Passage’s Online Learning Labs are online, interactive video lessons that students can view as a jumping off point to not only learn about the art of live theatre, but also to gain valuable Communication and Language Arts skills. Each session comes with a suggested activity to make the students’ learning both fun and engaging, with Learning Labs Information Packets able to be downloaded below. Learning Labs can be viewed individually, or they can be viewed as a series, with each Lab supplementing the others. All Learning Labs are available on our website for parents, teachers, and students from their posted date through June 30, 2021.

All of our teaching artists are paid for their time in creating these Labs, which are free and open to the public. To help Passage continue to keep our programming accessible to our community, please donate here.
