The Schooltime Series
Professional performing artists create educational experiences to encourage and support literacy, creativity, communication and imagination across the academic curriculum.
Students from PreK-12th grades join us for exciting learning experiences in language arts, fine arts, social studies, science and literature. Performance disciplines include theater, music, dance and more.
Carefully selected shows match the curriculum established by Albuquerque and Rio Rancho Public Schools to provide new, innovative ways of bringing subject material to life for New Mexico’s youth. Our Dreamcatchers study guides provide in-class curricula to educators, and our Question & Answer sessions with the cast further enhance the live theater performance.
We welcome Pueblo schools, private schools and home schools in each community, including ADA special needs students and classrooms. In fact, the only rule for attendance is that a child must accompany an adult.
Due in part to a generous grant by the Urban Enhancement Trust Fund, tickets are priced at only $2.00 to help fill some of the void left by budget cuts to arts programming in our schools. We also provide at least 3,000 free tickets, per year, to the APS Title 1 schools with the most need.
For this season's show offerings and the Dreamcatchers study guides, visit the Schooltime Series.
