Shaping Young Minds
What do Australia, Canada, England and the United States have in common? These four countries are represented in the 2017-2018 Ritz Discovery Series. Attending our quality Arts-in-Education programming of live theatre performances this year not only provides students with a different option to learn content and relate to their peers, but offers an international geography lesson as well.
The Ritz Discovery Series is designed to present material with subject matter that can be easily connected to current curriculum or added in creative ways. Special Study Guides preceding the performance will provide activities relevant to coursework and is intended to help expand the theatre experience into the classroom. The hour-long programs of the Discovery Series meet national education standards. They are intended to introduce the performing arts to students of all ages nurturing them in ways that can never happen while sitting alone in front of a computer or staring at a phone.
Educators and teachers shape the lives of children every day. The Ritz Theatre would like to partner in this effort of exposing students to the arts with live theatrical productions. Age appropriate events of superior educational and artistic merit are presented for students in grades K-12.
Thousands of children from Northwest Ohio have had this opportunity for nearly 30 years. In addition, a trip to the 89-year-old historic Ritz Theatre is a way of connecting with others and discovering the past through an exciting cultural adventure.
Sydney, Australia; Nova Scotia, Canada; Bristol, England and West Liberty, Ohio coming to Tiffin and The Ritz Theatre for the 2017-2018 Discovery Series.
