The Reif Center advocates for the arts as a critical part of education. Our Children’s Performing Arts Series supports this mission by providing access to powerful and enriching performance experiences for classrooms across the region.
The Children’s Performing Arts Series is a line-up of daytime performances for K-12 school groups. These events are offered at a highly reduced ticket price of $7/student ($6 if paid 1 week in advance). Educational support materials are available for most performances in the series. If travel expenses are an obstacle for your group, we invite you to submit an application for a busing subsidy.
