New Rep On Tour, now in its 12th Season, has performed for over 88,000 students. New Rep On Tour's mission is to bring high quality professional productions of relevant plays from the dramatic and literary canon to area schools. This program features the talents of some of the finest professional artists from the Boston area. Each season, these artists create two live theatrical touring productions of significant dramatic literature and bring them to Middle Schools and High Schools throughout Massachusetts. This is New Rep's flagship educational outreach program, last year performing for over 14,000 students in 45 schools. The performances are supported with co-curricular activities, including study guides, workshops, and post-performance discussions.


What teachers and students are saying about New Rep On Tour:

"Many of our students have never seen a live play before and this experience was so important and beneficial for them"
-A teacher from the Nathaniel Bowditch Elementary School

"Having [New Rep On Tour] visit our school was a nice alternative to our going to the theatre—it allowed us to hold morning classes so that students didn’t have to miss a full day—so important with MCAS on our minds."
-High School teacher about The Diary of Anne Frank

"Your play has opened my eyes to look beyond words and understand the play."
-7th grade student about Hamlet
