Education


The School of MOXIE was developed to create a place where professionals, beginners and community members could learn more about the craft of theatre. To learn how you can become involved with the School of MOXIE, contact our Education Director at education@moxietheatre.com

School of MOXIE Programs 

MOXIE in the Schools – In collaboration with VAPA and the San Diego Unified School District, MOXIE Theatre professionals offer In-School Seminars, Professional Development Seminars and Common Core Supported Workshops to Middle Schools and High Schools in the San Diego area.

Internship and Mentorship & Fellowship Programs – Our internship program supports High School students in their professional development and provides role models for young theatre makers. Internships are available in Production, Marketing, Technical and Administrative Departments. Our mentorship program is made possible in part through generous support from SDG&E.

MOXIE’s has also partnered with SDSU to create the The SDSU/MOXIE Fellowship. This paid fellowship provides SDSU theatre design students with the opportunity to gain professional experience by working at MOXIE. Dea and Osborn Hurston are the generous sponsor of our fellowship program.

MOXIE in the Community– In addition to our “Second Sunday” post show discussion with the director and casts of each production, MOXIE offers post show discussions with leaders from the community around topics for a specific production to deepen the audiences’ understanding as well as to connect MOXIE with lasting community partners. Professors from San Diego State University are a regular part of these community discussions which allow our audience to benefit from the wealth of knowledge available on our local university campus. Learn More about upcoming events.

MOXIE in the Corporate World– MOXIE’s Theatre Immersion Program was developed as a team building tool for corporations. Designed and developed by Associate Artistic Director, Jennifer Eve Thorn, to increase confidence, improve communication skills, and encourage team building. MOXIE artists divide participants into groups (mixing top management with administration, etc.). The MOXIE artists then lead each group through the process of producing live theatre beginning with creating a script based on the theme of the retreat or the company’s future goal. Groups are encouraged to stretch their imaginations, shed inhibitions, communicate ideas clearly, and discover the unique talents of coworkers in order to create an entirely new piece of theatre which they perform for each other at the end of the session.
