MTVarts Classics Series honors our cultural and literature heritage with an educational outreach to secondary students. Our productions present (as the author intended) authentic, uncensored works by iconic American playwrights.
Working with the Knox County Education Service Center, secondary students are invited to attend a free performance of works they have read in class. A cast/crew talk-back session is offered after the performance.
The 21st century student experiencing live theatre in an educational environment has greater tolerance and improved ability to read the emotions of others, has increased understanding of plot and vocabulary, and gains an appreciation for the arts. Measured in the lives engaged, the thoughts provoked, and the experience of seeing literature studied come to life on the stage, this is our most successful endeavor.
The 2023 Classics Series Show presented Thornton Wilder's OUR TOWN.
