This is it, the final dress rehearsal before opening night.

And you and your students are invited because we just can’t wait to share the show with you. Join us before the performance to meet the artists you’re about to see onstage as well as behind-the-scenes production members, sharing stories about their careers in the arts. Afterwards, it’s on to the theater for a full-scale, nearly opening night ready performance. The show is about to begin, and we’ve saved a spot just for you.

Things to know:

  • Tickets are free.
  • Teachers must attend required in-service (psst..we make it super fun).
  • Teachers can bring up to 50 students and chaperones.
  • This is an amazing way to incorporate arts material into your lesson plans for (nearly) any subject.
