THE 2020-2021

Each season, The Grand offers a selection of performances to area students and school groups. This year, due to the pandemic, all performances will be presented virtually and at no cost to students and educators.  All of The Grand’s children’s programs feature professional touring companies who have sterling reputations for high-quality productions.

Comprehensive study guides are available to schools prior to a performance, which will allow teachers to incorporate activities centered around the story into their curricula. In addition to the performance, The Grand is offering virtual workshops to schools participating in a performance, again at no charge. Designed to enhance students’ learning experiences by providing a literary and live performance connection, the workshops are presented via Zoom and are limited and scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
