Field Trips 2016



Join us for a fun-filled TPE field trip! See a show at a local professional theatre, in the company of one or more of our expert teachers. We see plays throughout the DC area, and sometimes further away. The field trip leader provides perspective and context for the show with a pre- or post-show discussion, as well as oversight and sometimes transport or introductions to the performers.



Families can come, too!
YES, parents, siblings and friends are welcome to come along – the more, the merrier! Adults may or may not qualify for the ticket discount, depending on the venue. However, our trip to the Maryland Renaissance Festival is campers only.
