Outreach Programs

Global Classroom

Global Classroom for local schools and those beyond our region and country.

“We hope to have students recognize how literature affects their life,” said Tim Devlin, a member Prime Stage's board of directors. Devlin wants students to “recognize diversity and how different cultures bring literature to life.” Devlin said “The students in Belfast were tremendously curious about life in the U.S., and the students in Belfast really intrigued the Pine-Richland students.”

Using digital video technology, local students connect with students beyond our region and country.

We have connected with students in Belfast, Ireland, with students from Israel, and here's a video with students in the Dominican Republic for In the Time of the Butterflies.
