School Shows

Blumenthal’s school show matinees invite students to experience professional theater at a reduced cost, many for the first time, and offer area teachers the opportunity to explore the connections between live entertainment, arts education, and classroom curriculum. Our school shows vary each year with the number of offerings, seating capacity, and age appropriateness of show content.  School matinees are often times in high demand and availability is on a first come, first serve basis. If your school is interested in booking tickets, please contact our Special Programs Manager, Tommy Prudenti, at [email protected]!

Here are the upcoming school show opportunities for the 2019-2020 season!

National Geographic Live: Into the Arctic Kingdom: Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Discovery Place Science and Blumenthal Performing Arts are pleased to announce a second installment of the popular National Geographic Live series. Into the Arctic Kingdom, March 24, 2020 - 10:00am. His multi-year quest to document the Arctic took photographer Florian Schulz to the ends of the Earth. He camped for weeks in jarring winter conditions, accompanied traditional Inuit hunters and sailed the arctic waters, all to get an intimate look at life in the Arctic. There, he tracked families of polar bears, followed the vast caribou herds, and captured the Northern Lights in stunning detail. Through breathtaking imagery, the National Geographic photographer takes audiences on a legendary journey into the Arctic kingdom — with a special focus on the Arctic Refuge, one of the world's last great wilderness.

Ticket price includes a ticket to the performance and admission to Discovery Place! If you are interested in booking tickets, please reach out to Discovery Place Group Sales at 704-348-1974.
