Performance Guidebooks

To enhance your students’ understanding of each performance, TPAC’s Season for Young People guidebooks offer thematic learning units, lesson plan suggestions, and background information that will help you create classroom and life learning contexts for your students. Our guidebooks provide specific production details, artistic insights, and study materials for use before and after each performance.

Due to the generous underwriting of our season sponsor, we are able to publish the guidebook materials and send them to teachers attending TPAC’s Season for Young People free of charge. Guidebooks are mailed to teachers four to six weeks prior to a production.

All guidebooks require Adobe Acrobat.

Season for Young People was formerly known as Humanities Outreach in Tennessee (HOT).
