The NOLA Project’s Education wing is designed to fulfill a fundamental component of the company’s not-for-profit mission: to expand the minds, hearts, and creativity of our New Orleans community. Through conservatory style training, youth summer theatre productions, a theater for young audiences school touring production, and community partnerships, our Education wing enriches the artistry of The NOLA Project through connectivity.


Theatre for young audiences tour

Our acclaimed OSKAR tour could be coming to your school!

In Fall 2019 we will kick off our second tour of the entertaining and educational OSKAR series of plays designed for children grades K-5. Schools can book OSKAR to come perform right in the school for NO CHARGE. And our flexible production allows for performance in virtually any type of setting--classroom, library, cafeteria, gym, or theater of course :)

This year's production, OSKAR AND THE BIG BULLY BATTLE tells the story of a schoolyard scuffle and how three students deal with and learn from the experience. OSKAR plays are always funny, interactive, engaging, and smart.  Interested in booking us?

Our Theatre for Young Audiences tour is made possible by a generous grant from the Keller Family Foundation and the 610 Stompers Give Back.

It’s a great way of exposing kids to the arts in a fun, engaging, and thought-provoking way.  We intend to keep up this tradition for a long time to come.

It is with great sadness that we must cancel this year's NOLA Project Summer Intensive due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Ensemble theatre is an art of togetherness, and at this time it is still not entirely safe to be together without putting the health of others at risk. Additionally, our host Lusher Charter School will not be hosting summer activities this year in order to keep our community safe. 

We very much plan to be back in summer 2021 and hope that all of our students and families stay safe and healthy as we work through this challenging time.

Since 2012, the educators of The NOLA Project have come together to provide the most comprehensive summer high school theatre training in the region. Students are selected based on their enthusiasm, desire, and potential. Students from across the New Orleans region assemble under the guidance of the city’s best theater educators to learn, explore, and innovate the craft of acting.

The NOLA Project High School Intensive (NPHSI) has become known as the boldest and most productive summer training experience in the New Orleans region.
