Horizons Theater Workshops

These workshops provide mostly middle school students with training in theater and creative writing. Our goal is to support student’s imagination and creative agency. 

 

Using fun, engaging exercises, students learn the necessary skills to present theatrical performances to their family and friends.

These weekly workshops culminate in student’s performing their original writing.  Each workshop site performs two shows—a holiday performance in December and a full-length production in spring.

Rising Up! Creating your Own Lyric

“I believe in one day and someday and this perfect moment called Now.”- Jacqueline Woodson, Black Girl Dreaming

Rising Up! is a 12-week education program for Baltimore City middle school students. Expert teaching artists work with one classroom per site. The term begins in January and ends in April/May.
