School Days Field Trips

As of January we are planning on performing A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Last Best Small Town for our Fall 2021 School Days Field Trip program.

In place of Field Trips this coming Spring, we are excited to continue our Classics in the Classroom program, designed to bring your students a similar experience to our in-person field trips, offered online at your convenience! 

This program includes a preparatory workshop with one of our fantastic teaching artists, a 45-minute recorded version of our signature Midsummer Night’s Dream production, and a follow-up analysis and assessment workshop! Plus, we are pleased to share that you can choose to watch with subtitles in English or Spanish. Plus, we are planning on adding more shows later in the year – we’ll let you know when they’re available!

If you’re an early planner, the Fall 2021 School days dates are below – contact us to reserve your space today!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream – September 30, October 8 & 14.
Last Best Small Town (world premiere production!!) – September 29, October 5
