The Wiz Teaching Resources & Events

Prepare your students to attend The Wiz by acquainting them with Afrofuturism and the role of this musical in American art and history.

Our production resources incorporate ELA and Social Studies curricula, and adhere to Common Core standards. We offer pre-show materials and interactive post-show activities. Print out copies of our resources to share on the bus ride home from the show. Afterwards, engage in a grade-appropriate lesson plan or guided discussion to help students reflect upon their experience.
