Measuring Impact

Our Philosophy

Lantern Theater Company believes strongly that arts education is a vital component of creating vibrant, well-rounded citizens. Given the current challenges facing the educational system in Philadelphia and its surrounding areas, it is our civic duty to do what we can to support arts in the classroom and, more importantly, to support the current generation of students who are most affected by these challenges.

Illumination, the Lantern's award-winning education program, seeks to demonstrate the value of arts education and to provide innovative, arts-focused approaches to traditional non-arts curriculum in order to enhance the value of education in the Philadelphia region.

Illumination has recently embarked on a crucial expansion phase which will see us not only partnering with more local schools, but also training classroom teachers in the use of theatrical tools and techniques in the classroom to deepen student understanding and engagement with material covering a wide spectrum of topics and subjects.

Through Illumination, we offer the following programming:

Through our new Lantern Theater School, we also offer theater classes for students of all ages and skill levels.
