Live Performances

Provide your students with a unique opportunity for learning that extends past the four walls of a classroom. Students will experience the adventure of live theatre and learn curriculum at the same time in our historic Mainstage or our intimate black box GE Theatre.

School Day shows produced by nationally touring youth theatre companies bring characters from history and literature to life in one-hour school-day matinees. The lecture-demonstration format of selected shows provides a perfect opportunity to introduce students to cultural music and dance artists from around the world.

Field trips combined with arts activities before, during, and after the experience enable students to create powerful memories that they can recall the rest of their lives. Use our Curriculum Guides to reinforce key concepts before and after the field trip.
