InFlight Arts In Education Program

InFlight, a program of the Phoenix Theatre Ensemble, has been collaborating with Pre-K through High School Public Schools in the East Village of NYC for the past 12 years to bring learning adventures to students through theatre arts. Through process-based, interactive theatre we explore the stories of our world and bring literature to life in the classroom.

Several years ago we added an Acting Studio Theatre Program for the students at ESCHS, a NYC 6-12 public school. Students receive a professional level theater program which culminates in a full performance. We have embarked on a journey in the theatre arts which includes an exploration of theatre, literature, script analysis and ensemble creation. As the students develop as actors they must employ critical thinking, problem solving, conflict resolution, creativity, imagination and commitment. This season the youth of the InFlight Company will perform 2 fully supported theatre productions at an Off-Broadway theatre venue.
