Illumination Education Program
Lantern Theater Company believes 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.

Through Illumination, we offer the following programming:
