There is still time to CHANGE A LIFE!

Arts experiences have a proven, tangible benefit to student learning. And they’re entertaining! Attending a live theatrical performance where stories and characters are brought to life on stage not only develops students’ reading comprehension and critical thinking skills, it also deepens their ability to empathize and tolerate differences. Furthermore, seeing live theatre helps to expand imagination and creativity - all necessary for today’s young scholars!
