PREPARING STUDENTS FOR THEIR FUTURE THROUGH THE ARTS


All of our school programs, serving K - Grade 12, engage students in learning actively, immerse them in culture, and transport them through history. School performances align with Common Core and Louisiana State Content Standards for language arts, social studies, and the visual and performing arts, including STEAM Programming, and are supported with materials and resources to help connect the on-site visit to the classroom. There is a link below to connect you to the materials and Teacher's Resource Guides.

Students with special needs: Please let us know in advance so we may arrange for wheelchair seating. Infrared assisted listening devices are also available. Tickets for students for all school performances range from $10 to $12. One complimentary teacher ticket is offered for every 25 student tickets purchased. Tickets are $15 for parents accompanying their child to a school show. All reservations for parents must be done through the school's ticket reservation. Tickets for parents are not sold separately for school shows.
