Class Acts & More...
August - May
Enjoy Theater From Home
The "Class Acts On Demand Virtual Shows" program offers students and educators the chance to reserve seats for virtual viewings of live performances, bringing the theater experience directly to classrooms or students unable to attend in person. This initiative aims to bridge the gap by delivering the magic of live shows through online accessibility, offering a convenient and enriching cultural experience for all participants. Through interactive elements and supplementary resources, it creates an inclusive platform for students to engage with the arts and expand their horizons.
