While our season productions are the most visible part of our mission, the equal aspect that goes unseen to the majority of the public is our education department. Give Miami Day serves to highlight these key programs serving so many young people in Miami in addition to the world class productions we create at the Colony Theatre.

Arts Education Matters! Miami New Drama is committed to youth in our communities and using theater as a tool for transformative educational artistic experiences for all.

We started our education programs with one student matinee of our multilingual version of Thornton Wilder's OUR TOWN serving about 400 students. This launched a movement and we are now consistently serving thousands of students annually.

Each season we offer:

Student matinees at the Colony Theatre
An invite for schools to come see morning performances from our own MiND season of shows, including a talk-back! All programming, buses, and tickets are provided free-of-charge to students and schools.

Educational touring productions
We modernize and adapt stories into a play, which we tour around Miami-Dade public schools and community centers. The tour includes talkbacks and workshops allowing students to engage further with the productions and discuss the show's themes.

STEAM classes at local high schools
Where Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics meets the Arts, providing students with skills for inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

In-school residencies
Bringing multiple theater artists to your school for a 9-week residency which develops artistry and creativity in the students.

Summer Theater Intensive
Summer programs for ages 7-18 specializing from performance to design - all aspects of becoming a well-rounded artist!

Notable Awards: 2021 Drama League Winner, 2022 & 2018 Miami New Times Best Theater, 2022 Thornton Wilder Award, Carbonell Awards
