Theatre can be a powerful tool in your classroom. For over forty years, People's Light has been nationally recognized for its artistry and innovation in its programs for young people. We believe that theatre is so much more than seeing a performance – it's a way of knowing and experiencing the world.

A Christmas Carol – December 2020

By Charles Dickens
A New Adaptation by Zak Berkman

Callous Scrooge, shackled Marley, and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future spring vividly to life in a fresh adaptation of our favorite yuletide ghost story. Featuring a vibrant mix of newly arranged 19th century English carols and original songs, this music-infused retelling captures the transformative joy and generosity of Charles Dickens’ beloved classic.

A Raisin in the Sun – March 2021

By Lorraine Hansberry
Directed by Amina Robinson

Simultaneously intimate and mythic in scope, Lorraine Hansberry’s pivotal drama “changed American theatre forever” (The New York Times). Three generations of the Younger family share a cramped apartment on the segregated South Side of 1950s Chicago. The late Mr. Younger’s life insurance policy could mean a fresh start, but disputes over how to spend the money reveal deep generational divides.

  • Recommended for Middle and High School students.

Walden – April 2021

By Amy Berryman
Directed by Jackson Gay

As Earth becomes increasingly uninhabitable, space colonization is within reach. Twin sisters Stella and Cassie, both young and ambitious NASA scientists, have worked tirelessly toward this goal. But deep-seated rivalry, personal entanglements, and conflicting philosophies threaten to drive them irrevocably apart—while the planet’s fate hangs in the balance. This incredibly smart new drama hails from one of American theatre’s rising female voices.

  • Recommended for High School students
  • Student Performance: April 16 at 10am
  • Approximately 90 minutes
  • $18 per person (1 free seat for every 20 purchased); free to Title 1 schools
