Live performances can be an unforgettable experience that reinforce classroom learning, ignite creativity and help young people develop a lifelong enthusiasm for the arts. The School Performance Series at SOPAC complements classroom lesson plans by engaging students in entertaining and educational performing arts experiences that support the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards.
Performances often include Q&A sessions with artists along with Study Guides to help get the most fun and learning from your field trip experience.
