Educational Programs

The State Street Project

Passage’s educational programming, known as the State Street Project, invites youth and adults of all ages and backgrounds to explore, fully realize, and share their greatest creative potential and the potential of community through the power of expression – onstage, in the classroom and throughout in their neighborhoods. 

Throughout the years, Passage has brought artistic residencies to a number of local partner organizations, including (in recent years) Trenton Central High School, Hedgepeth-Williams Middle School of the Arts, the Christina Seix Academy, the Emily Fisher Charter School, the Boys & Girls Club, the Ellarslie Museum, and the River City Community School.

Shows For Young Audiences

This November, Passage will be producing a staged reading (with puppets!) of Ricardo Gamboa’s play The Real Life Adventures of Jimmy de las Rosas at the Mill Hill Playhouse at 11 AM on Friday, November 2, 2018 and at 6:30 PM on Saturday, November 3, 2018.

Thirteen-year-old Jimmy longs to use his secret telekinetic powers. He just didn’t want his mother’s life to be in danger. As disappearances haunt his neighborhood, Jimmy joins forces with two other superpowered kids to save his mother and unmask a criminal hiding in plain sight.

This play is suitable for ALL AGES, but particularly for ages 8 and up.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased beginning July 1st, 2018.
Ticket rates for groups of ten or more are $7. Contact elizabeth@passagetheatre.org for more information.

Help Support Arts Education

Passage Theatre is dedicated to the promotion and implementation of arts education in Mercer County. However, a large amount of time and resources are necessary to support this type of programming, and to ensure that our students and teaching artists receive the best training possible. If you or someone you know may be interested in helping to fund a State Street Project program, please contact our Managing Director, Damion Parran, at damion@passagetheatre.org for more information.

Teaching Artist Opportunities

Passage’s educational programming invites youth and adults of all ages and backgrounds to explore, fully realize, and share their greatest creative potential and the potential of community through the power of expression – onstage, in the classroom, in their neighborhoods, and across the nation. Many of our programs include the creation of new work with students. If you are interested in helping to teach the future playwrights and theatre makers of tomorrow, please see our Education Page or contact Artistic Director Ryanne Domingues at ryanne@passagetheatre.org for more information on how to get involved.
