Welcome to Dayton Live’s Discovery Series!
The Discovery Series is a curated series of performing arts experiences that provide schools and their students with new pathways for achievement both inside and outside of the classroom.
Because we believe that arts education is an essential component of every student’s academic journey, each Discovery Series production has been carefully selected to enhance Ohio state academic standards throughout multiple subject areas. For many years, studies have shown the arts have a real impact on a student’s reading and language skills, mathematics skills, thinking skills, social skills, and motivation to learn.
Thank you for investing in a field trip to the Discovery Series and making the arts a priority in the academic lives of our young people!
Our free, downloadable online resource guides for each production are full of practical information and grade-specific activities for you and your students. Resource guides contain a synopsis, production notes, and before-and-after activities. You can find a link to a specific show’s Resource Guide on the show’s page or in our Resource Guide library.
If you have students who would like to eat their lunches after the show at our facility, we have several studio spaces that can be reserved just for you! Call 937-228-7591, ext. 3039 to arrange a reservation.
We have created a variety of exciting educational Discovery Master Classes for you and your students that are available all year long! Discovery Master Classes can be booked on the same day that you see a performance or another day throughout the school year.
