Education + Outreach:
Page to Stage
Page to Stage is a series of high school matinees of professional productions in the theatre specifically for students. Company One is actively pursuing ways to make theatre more accessible to middle and high school students, particularly using productions that tie in with school curricula. With these matinees, Company One will be providing opportunities for students to see professional theatre and have access to conversation with the artists involved in the production as well. In an effort to support the work of teachers, Company One provides educators with in-depth curriculum support materials, helping to prepare the students prior to coming to the theatre as well as providing follow-up materials and lesson plans. Our intention is to align our productions’ curricula with the MA Curriculum Frameworks in Theatre and English, as well as History when applicable.

- Theatre Mirror
While the country is ushering in change with the election of a new president, Company One is doing the same with a new kind of theatre. Set in the not-so-distant-future, ARTiculation follows the journey of six Boston poets as they weave their way through the vast jungles of their own imaginations. Armed with only words, this young diverse ensemble provides a mosaic of life, love, youth, religion and art set to a thundering mix of urban poetics and dynamic live theatre. Written by the performers themselves, Company One is proud to present the artistic revolution that is ARTiculation.
