2018-19 Arts Education Season

It was a wonderful 2018-19 season! A record-breaking 18,667 students and teachers from all over Central Virginia attended Arts Education performances reaching grades Pre-K – 12. Students and teachers came from 60 public schools (15 school divisions throughout Central Virginia), 25 private schools and 56 home school groups. Thanks to the generosity of The Paramount’s Arts Education Partners, nearly 4,800 students benefitted from additional financial assistance based on need.

The 2018-19 season programming included: Theatre Heroes’ Call of the Wild: Illustrated Edition; Black Violin; Theaterworks USA’s Dragons Love Tacos & Other Stories!; National Players’ The Crucible; Childsplay’s Tomás and the Library Lady; Enchantment Theatre Company’s The Phantom Tollbooth; Mad River Theater Works’ Freedom Bound; Theater Unspeakable’s The American Revolution; Bay Area Children’s Theatre’s Peg + Cat Live; and Dallas Children’s Theater’s Diary of a Worm, A Spider, and A Fly.

The 2019-20 season promises to be another great community success with a wide range of new and stimulating programming.  A complete listing of performances and dates will be announced on our website in July. Brochures will be sent to all schools and home school groups in early August. Registration for the season will kick off in mid-August.  More details to come!
