Educational Tools

PAPAYA invites Delaware Valley educators to bring their school groups to our scheduled Student Matinee shows.  Curated specifically for youth audiences, PAPAYA at the Bride offers performances of the highest artistic caliber that will ignite students imaginations, open their eyes to the world around them and help them to appreciate the excitement of live performances.


And now the students can participate when they come to the shows!  This season PAPAYA is offering innovative interactive student experiences created by PAPAYA's Artistic leadership for each production.


PAPAYA invests in high-quality curriculum support materials designed to provide educators with tools that will enhance the students' performance experience.  The downloadable Curriculum Guides offer links to statewide academic standards and provide information about the diversity of international artists presented.
