Field Trips

learning at center stage

Each year, the Arts Center welcomes schools from throughout the Lowcountry to experience a variety of performing and visual arts.

As part of our mission for education and outreach, the Arts Center brings schools for live professional performances that include world-class dance companies, special daytime showings of our own theatrical productions, and youth-oriented theater brought in specifically for children.

Many of our field trips feature talk-backs following the performance with play/musical cast members or dancers who talk about the show and their own personal journeys in the arts. Engagement is exciting to witness as youth of all ages ask questions of these performers who bring a bit of the big, wide world right to them!

Registration Questions?

If you have any questions or need help with the online registration process, please contact Senior Director of Education Alana Adams.

The Arts Center is a founding member of the Kennedy Center Partners in Education Program.
