Who We Are
Livestream Learning Studio was established by the leadership team at The National Theatre for Children (NTC) as a direct response to the deficits in education worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic. NTC has been producing a special brand of standards-aligned education, delivered through live theatrical productions, since 1978. Administrators, teachers and students look forward to our unique blend of entertainment and impactful educational content that connects with students of all ages, across a variety of demographics.
We know that students benefit from events and curriculum that provide effective social-emotional learning opportunities. We also know that educational programs enhanced by the creative arts spark joy in learning. Over our many years visiting schools in person and soliciting feedback from educator evaluations, we’ve received requests for enrichment subjects and arts-integration programming outside the scope of our sponsored projects. Based on those needs, we made the decision to branch out into the development of affordable and impactful content that supports students and teachers through a year-long subscription service. We’re excited and proud to introduce Livestream Learning Studio.

What we do
How could a live event be more accessible to educators across the country? How could schools repeat the experience in different subjects and grades? How could a schedule be made that serves more students? Livestream Learning Studio answers these very questions by utilizing accessible digital platforms and arts-integrated comedy sketches with a live director who interacts in real time with the student audience. The Studio offers 192 live events each year across grades 3-5. Programs are easy to enjoy with a flexible schedule and a capacity to serve all your students. Livestream Learning Studio creatively explores various topics in STEM, health and wellbeing, and financial literacy, all the while using social-emotional learning (SEL) perspectives to fully engage with students.
In the first year of programming, the teachers and administrators we’ve served have been overwhelmingly positive. Almost half a million American students across all learning models (in-school, remote learning, hybrid) have engaged with this unique learning system and real-time interaction. Livestream Learning Studio is excited to continue to build our library and expand our base of educators.
