Waterway Stage combines the power of the performance arts with the joy of scientific investigation to engage students and their communities in their local watersheds. Classrooms from around Vermont collaborate with expert educators from Very Merry Theatre and ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain to research and perform original plays on a pressing water quality issue.
