School Day Shows

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. Use the show Curriculum Guides to reinforce key concepts before and after the field trip.
