Stream the POP Tour for
FREE this Spring

The Performance Outreach Program (POP) Tour will be available to all San Diego schools, teachers and students at no cost. Please click on the ‘Booking Information’ button below to sign up and we will alert you as soon as Pick Me Last is available to stream.

Since 1987, we’ve commissioned and developed new plays each year for young people that tours schools, community centers and libraries throughout San Diego County. A typical year includes a live 45-minute in-school performance and classroom curriculum. We won’t miss a beat this year with a virtual option to stream the POP Tour (in chapters if needed) and offer curriculum lessons and videos featuring Playhouse teaching artists on our website.

The year’s POP Tour, Pick Me Last, is written by Idris Goodwin and directed by Jacole Kitchen, and will highlight the importance of inclusivity at school. It is recommended for students in elementary through 6th grade.

Jacole Kitchen is the Playhouse’s Artistic Programs Manager and Local Casting Director. Idris Goodwin is a multidisciplinary arts leader and creative community builder. Across two decades, he has forged a multifaceted career as an award-winning playwright.

We are looking forward to sharing the joy of the POP Tour with thousands of students virtually this year.
