Celebrate Theatre in Our Schools Month this March

Show the Country Why Theatre Education is So Important

  • Theatre has a unique way of connecting people from diverse backgrounds.
  • Theatre gives students a voice.
  • Theatre creates shared experiences.
  • Theatre brings us together.
  • TIOS is a special time to share your story on how school theatre has affected you.

Theatre in Our Schools Month (TIOS) is a grassroots effort to educate everyone about the benefits of having theatre in the schools, and to draw attention to the need for more access to quality programs for all students.

The campaign is jointly sponsored nationally by the American Alliance for Theatre & Education (AATE), the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA), and the International Thespian Society (ITS).

Get Involved

Thespians, schools and educators…share your stories of the importance of school theatre with leaders, influencers, policymakers, and all community members. 

Please use the documents, messages, and graphics found on the TIOS webpage to create your own TIOS plan:
