    In an increasingly fraught time regarding what is taught and presented in school settings, school shows can be prohibited in advance or canceled with plans and even rehearsals underway. This session will explore the range of opposition that can arise, sometimes from the unlikeliest places and on the unlikeliest titles, and discuss how teachers can – and sometimes can’t – fight for work they believe has value for their students and the school as a whole. The workshop will explore both specific case studies and the larger issues at stake, including free speech, copyright, censorship and the value of plays and musicals in the secondary school experience, as well as how to prepare in advance to prevent the risk and brinksmanship that can occur while prioritizing theatre educational experience.
