School Show Program

During the academic year, the Opera House offers a selection of performances that we believe will meet the curricular, financial, and scheduling needs of area classrooms and home-school groups. Ranging from adaptations of favorite children’s books and interpretations of historical events to live-action science demonstrations and musical performances, these events are many students’ first opportunity to experience live performing arts. We host over 4,000 children annually.

Our Arts & Education programming is made possible through the generosity of
the Borman Family Foundation and Inland Hospital.
