With a key interest in education and quality of life, the Racine Theatre Guild plays a unique role, giving everyone access to the performing arts, instilling creativity and open mindedness. “Lighting up lives at all stages” has been a part of our fabric since 1938 and we take pride in giving back to the Racine area which has supported us since day one.
Student Focused Performances
During the year, RTG chooses two productions to be performed not only for our regular audiences, but also students from throughout the area. During special daytime performances, children of all ages are introduced to the magic of theater! Students have the chance to ask questions, see the behind-the-scenes action, and share their excitement with the cast and crew.
During this year’s production of The Wizard of Oz, students of all ages will enjoy the wonderful land of Oz as it comes to life on stage. Following each performances, students go to have a talk back with the director, cast, and crew!

In collaboration with the Racine Unified School District, 6th graders from throughout the area attend workshops and enjoy a performance of Akeelah and the Bee. Workshop topics typical include acting, special effects, and stage combat.
Teachers are encouraged to build a lesson plan around the performance, discussing aspects of theater and the story. Examples can be found here for theater.
