The Education Series offers field trip opportunities for public, private, and home schooling groups. Education Series performances are professional, nationally touring productions geared to young audiences to educate and entertain, making the State Theatre and extension of the classroom and offering many children their first opportunity to experience the lively arts.
All Education Series performances provide a study guide with pre- and post- show discussion topics and activities to enhance the learning experience. Recommended ages and grade levels are provided. Those age groups will get the most out of the production. Audience members younger and older than the recommended age group are welcome to attend and will understand and enjoy most of the production. Teachers, as you know your class and your students’ abilities, use your discretion.
