MCT strives to transcend any barriers such as language, culture, financial resources, and unique needs to transform lives by actively engaging people in the arts. While virtually on our campus their team of touring artists, (aka Tour Actor/Directors), cast our students in a children’s musical which they perform after just six days of rehearsal. They will also teach three theatre workshops during the week, all students experience the theater. We would benefit from the MCT experience in the following ways: 1)our students (79%) come from another language background (Spanish, Mashallese, Tongan, Somoan, Tagalog, Guamanian). Best practices in English Language Development recommend providing students with creative and authentic activities during which they can interact with peers and adults in English. NVACS: SL. K-5, Comprehension and collaboration 2)Participation in MCT enhances a student’s socio-cultural and cognitive skills by providing opportunities to read and memorize songs, phrases, and character’s lines.

They come to see their own students, friends of their students, and other Spanish-speaking families on zoom . 4) MCT shows are free family engagement opportunities.
