Cape Fear Regional Theatre

About the Artist

We believe in the power of storytelling and the visceral impact of live theatre. We strive for the highest standards of excellence in our artistic work, educational offerings, and outreach efforts. Both our STUDENT MATINEE SERIES and ARTISTS ON THE GO! programs are designed to increase access to live theatre for teachers and students. Check out what the ARTISTS ON THE GO! program has to offer below, and read about our STUDENT MATINEE SERIES at the back of this guide.

This year Cape Fear Regional Theatre is offering three specialized programs inspired by their main stage season. Interactive programs include pieces from the show, a breakdown of main themes and characters, analysis of core concepts, and application of ideas to what is being taught in the classroom. Each program caters to young minds while being aligned with NC State Standards. This year’s offerings touch on English, Theatre, Science, Music, and History.
