Paramount and State Theaters
Literacy to Life
The Paramount and State Theatres engage children throughout Central Texas, cultivating a lifelong appreciation of the arts through their Education & Outreach Program. The Impact Austin grant will fund the Literacy to Life program, an eight week workshop in 3rd and 4th grade classrooms that uses drama, storytelling, and writing exercises to help students develop writing skills and celebrate the power of their imaginations. At the end of the residency, an ensemble of professional actors honors the creative voices of these students by bringing their writing to life in an energetic production for the whole school to see.
