Abstract: Evergreen Theatre provides educational theatre and drama with a focus on science of the natural world. Based in Canada, the company offers a best practice model for the effective use of drama as a teaching tool for science education that is embedded within a context of environmental sustainability. Evergreen offers a comprehensive approach to 'science drama' including science-based theatre shows and in-house school programs. This article will report on a case study of Evergreen Theatre. It will provide indications for how the company's approach might inform science learning using theatre and drama techniques.
