Each year, thousands of students attend productions at the Schauer Arts Center where they experience the best of professional theatre. We're continuing this 156-year tradition with a 2017-2018 Season of performances that will excite and engage both students and educators alike.

By bringing your students to a live performing arts experience, you are giving them the gift of experiential learning. Exposure to live theater ignites a child’s imagination in a unique way, opening the door to a greater understanding of the world and a life-long love of the arts. Each production presents opportunities for classroom discussion and lesson tie-ins that match the current Wisconsin Academic Standards. To learn more please view our Schooltime Matinee brochure.
