Scope:

TUTS has had an extensive Education and Outreach program for many years. As many school districts decrease their finding for the arts, non-profits such as TUTS must attempt to fill in the gaps. One small but critical way to do that is by providing on-line Content Guides for each Production during our season, These Content Guides can be accessed and printed from our website by teachers/instructors at their discretion. The Content Guides provide a synopsis of the story line, historical perspective of the times when the show was originally produced as well as additional resources to be accessed. Sometimes the Content Guides can include informational games relevant to that production.
