PERFORMANCE GUIDEBOOKS

To enhance your students’ understanding of each performance, HOT guidebooks offer thematic learning units, lesson plan suggestions, and background information that will help you create classroom and life learning contexts for your students. HOT 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 the HOT Season for Young People free of charge. Guidebooks are mailed to teachers and are available online four to six weeks prior to a production.

All guidebooks require Adobe Acrobat.

Click a show below to access its HOT Season for Young People guidebook online.


PLEASE NOTE: Guidebooks are posted 4-5 weeks prior to the performance.
