2018/19 OnStage Season
An electrifying dance crew blends technology and storytelling, classic books are brought to life, an internationally-renowned gospel choir sings South African harmonies, esteemed lecturers share their stories and more in our 30th season of the OnStage field trip performance series! Designed for students from schools and homeschools, a diverse range of performing art forms connects to content across the curriculum while offering various cultural perspectives. To deepen the student experience, we provide Educator Resource Guides for each show filled with curricular-focused lesson ideas.
Seats are $8 each for groups of 20 or more and $9 each for groups less than 20. One complimentary seat is given for every 15 seats reserved and subsidies are available for qualified groups. Please note tickets for Theatre LILA productions are $9/$10. Seats are limited. All performances are 60 minutes unless otherwise noted.
