Norristown Educational Theatre
Our Theatre Company
Norristown Educational Theatre is a PA Non-Profit, 501 (c) 3 organization. Our mission is to present theatre as performance and a teaching tool across the
curriculum, with special emphasis on literature, history and social issues. We seek to take performance to the student whether in the classroom, cafeteria, and library or community room. Of
particular importance, is to make theatre available to at-risk and under-served student audiences.
N.E.T. was founded in 2010, on the premise that all students should have access to artistic and cultural experiences regardless of their educational, social,
or economic backgrounds. Drawing on over 30 years of experience working in theatre and education, Founder and Artistic Director Gene Roland Frank, PhD, created Norristown Educational Theatre to
draw on the best practices of T.I.E, D.I.E, and progressive Educational Pedagogy.
