Discovery Series

The remaining 2019-2020 Discovery Series productions have been canceled. If you have tickets, please click here and you will be taken to a form where you can tell us what you’d like to do with your tickets.

We believe arts education is an essential component of every student’s academic journey, and this season is full of exciting opportunities in three different theatre spaces for you and your students! Each Discovery Series production has been carefully selected to enhance Ohio Learning Standards throughout multiple subject areas. For many years, studies have shown that arts have a real impact on a student’s reading and language skills, mathematics skills, thinking skills, social skills, and motivation to learn. By adding a Discovery Series experience to your academic calendar, you will be inspiring new pathways for achievement both inside and outside of the classroom.
