For this lesson, please review the video that is posted in the additional resources box (https://florida.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/theater-overview/behind-the-scenes-of-a-theater-company/).  It is an interview with the directors of the Lexington Theatre Company.  Based on the information they provided, have your student build their own theatre company.  The following questions should be answered:
– What is the name of your theatre company?
– Where are you located?
– What kind of shows do you produce? (Children’s theatre, musicals, community vs. touring comps, etc.)
– What aspect is most important to your company? (Production values, acting quality, concerts/music, etc.)
– Plan an opening season: what three shows would you start with?
– Anything else you’d add?
