Berkeley Rep digital initiative
DIG IN is Berkeley Rep’s new digital initiative that provides school communities with no cost digital access to professionally captured performances and interactive arts integration learning. Bring the magic of our ambitious storytelling to your classroom through our digital library of productions! Our unique collection presents a high-quality range of innovative productions, each including specially tailored resource guides for students and educators that align directly with secondary/high school curriculum standards.
In the fall of 2021, Berkeley Rep began to digitally capture our performances to be shared with school communities across Northern California. In the spring of 2022, our productions of Swept Away and Octet were shared with hundreds of students across the Bay Area. Now, we’re expanding even more with a full library featuring six Berkeley Rep productions!
Access Berkeley Rep’s world class theatre through DIG IN in your classroom today!

Digital library & experiential dramaturgy
From new musicals to contemporary literary adaptations, DIG IN provides accessible arts integration with humanities, theatre studies, and digital community building by connecting students and teachers to innovative new plays, archive materials, and learning resources. Lessons are aligned with CA Core and CASEL Standards. Each production in the DIG IN library includes curated resource guides for students and educators, captioning, access to the performance playbill, and one to two digital lessons focused on humanities, arts, or STEAM curriculum.
DIG IN also activates students to be in dialogue with the new work created on our main stage. Students have opportunities to create stories, music, video, dance, visual art, poetry, and theatre pieces through our interactive challenges in digital and social media spaces.
