Field Trips


Enhance classroom learning with field trips to Imagination Stage! Experiencing live theatre encourages students to read, develop critical and creative thinking, and be curious about the world around them. Bring your class to a show in our state-of-the-art theatre to support your curriculum. About three weeks before each show opens, a full-length activity guide is made available online. The activity guide includes curriculum ties and activities to be incorporated in the classroom or at home. Ask about our Warm Up At Your Seat! pre-show workshops and Ask The Actors! post-show Q&As. Tickets start at $7, and we offer special rates for Title 1 schools. View the complete 2014-2015 Season Field Trip brochure for more information.

Sinbad: The Untold Tale
April 8 - May 29
Dates and Details
Activity Guide

Curriculum Ties:
Mathematics–Compose two-dimensional or three-dimensional shapes to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
English Languange Arts – Compare and contrast the treatment of similar themes and patterns of events in stories, myths, and traditional literature from different cultures.

Sample Activity:
Theatre –In the first scene of the play, a woman, a thief, and a soldier try to steal the box that Sinbad the Porter is trying to deliver. To fend them off, he invents three different stories about what is in the box. Have the class use their actor’s tools—body, mind, voice, and imagination—to explore your own mystery box!

Fill a box with an assortment of everyday objects, and take turns pulling things out and using them as if they were something else. For example, the student may pull out a spoon and instead of pretending to eat, they may use it as a microphone. Ask students to guess how the object is being used, and have the action continue until someone gives the correct answer. It is okay if a student pulls an object that has already been used. Foster their fluency by having them use it in a different way. Students can use sounds, but no words.

For an added challenge, use pantomime instead of actual objects. Ask students to reflect on the game. What did your classmates do to make their item easier to guess? Why might pantomime be important in theatre?
