Orlando Repertory Theatre is committed to the link between literacy and the arts.

Engaged Learning through the Arts (ELTA) is a program designed for teachers, students, and early childhood centers.

All workshop content, model lessons, and resources are rooted in Florida State Standards and specifically English Language Arts Standards and Pre-K Frog Street Curriculum (dependent on grade level). Our offerings not only reach students and are designed to provide professional development for teachers in Arts Integration Strategies that support teacher confidence, creativity, and classroom engagement.

Story Drama Residencies

For Early Childhood through 2nd Grade Classrooms

Story Drama is an arts-based approach to exploring stories. We invite students to bring stories to life, which supports language activation, context building, and comprehension. Theatre becomes a creative access point to enter the world of stories!
