Frazier offers program on developing student performances


The Frazier History Museum will host a free professional learning program for teachers on the creation of student performances Jan. 20 at the museum in Louisville.

“History Comes to Life: Supporting Student Creation of Live, Historic Performances” is designed to support teachers in the development of student performances that take history from the page to the stage. Participants will receive an introduction to National History Day, view an American history-themed live performance by a Frazier teaching artist and experience a drama workshop.

The program, a collaboration between the Frazier museum and the Kentucky Historical Society, also includes a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum’s costume and prop collection and basic materials to help students create their own performances.

Teachers also will tour the exhibition, which is open through Sept. 10. The displays celebrate “The Hunger Games” franchise through costumes, props, set recreations and interactive content.

Advance registration is required. Visit the museum’s website for more information.
