School Show Series 2017-2018

A Firehouse Arts Education Program

The Firehouse Center for the Arts is committed to the belief that the arts are an essential part of the learning experience. We are pleased to present the 2017-2018 School Show Series schedule!

School Show Series 2017-2018CALLING ALL TEACHERS AND HOMESCHOOLERS!

The arts are an essential part of the learning process. They enhance creativity, teach lessons in nontraditional ways, and give youth new avenues of expression. Our School Show Series provides a way for students to get out of the classroom and visit this community resource for a shared experience. For some students, it’s their first time in a theater! Shows are presented by national and local groups, relate to a range of topics, and many include curriculum guides.

  • Tickets are available for schools and homeschool groups. These shows are not for public sale
  • Cost: $10 each (Please note: teachers and chaperones must purchase a seat)
  • All shows require a non-refundable deposit at the time of booking
  • Shows available for pre-school - high school.  Please consult the individual show for age guidelines
  • All shows are weekday performances at two times: 9:15/9:30am & 11:30/11:45am
