Peer Theatre

Peer Theatre is an ongoing collaboration between the Department of Theatre & New Dance and Pomona Unified School District. Cal Poly students learn how to create theatre for youth both in theory and in practice with partner schools from PUSD. Our students work with PUSD middle and high school students to create an original play about issues relevant to their lives, which is then performed at the school for families, teachers and fellow students.
