We were thrilled to welcome back school audiences for the first time in more than 2 years for high-quality educational and enriching live arts programming! This celebratory Arts Education is Baaack season joyfully brought 11,836 students and teachers (grades Pre-K – 12) from all around Central Virginia and TOGETHER we made great memories with artists from all over the world.
