Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

Our School Series helps energize the classroom by connecting the arts to what Pre-K-12 graders are already learning in school.

Shows produced by nationally and internationally touring youth theater companies bring common-core concepts, characters from history and literature to life in one-hour, school day matinees. Selected shows provide a perfect opportunity to introduce students to cultural music, dance, and theater artists from around the world.
