CORAL REEF DRAMA IS PROUD TO PARNTER WITH GABLESTAGE IN THE PILOT OF THEIR IGNITE PROGRAM!
The 2022/23 Season marks the pilot year of an initiativethat ignites the ambitions of the next generation of theatre artists. In addition to receiving tickets to all five productions, anominated partner high-school – with serious theatrestudents – will have season-long access to GableStageartists and company members. In advance of attendingthe production, students and teachers receive the scriptsfor the season and interactive study guides for eachproduction. They are then visited by a teaching artist and a member of the creative team for a private workshop. After each production, students will engage in a private Q& A with cast and crew in the theatre. Creative Teammembers will then re-visit the school to conduct active workshops using text and themes from the play. This season, GableStage invitedCoral Reef Senior High to be their designated partner school

What Reef Drama Students are saying about the IGNITE program.
"The Ignite program has been such an eye-opening experience for me. The kinds of plays we have been able to read and attend are so different from plays I have studied or seen before. It makes me think of theatre in a very different way. " -Tristan Brandon, Grade 12
"Working with the professional GableStage artists has been an opportunity I never thought I'd get. The kind of access we've had to the artistic team really had me feeling like a part of the process and that my voice and thoughts were valid and being heard"- Nicolle Cobo, Grade 11
"Iain Batchelor is the coolest, Having him lead us in an honest and thought-provoking discussion about each show and also the information that was sent to us prior to our workshops by Karina, really helped us understand and form opinions on each piece." Addison Stone, Grade 12
