Home / Discovery Series

The National Standard for Arts Education states that in any civilization the arts are inseparable from the very meaning of the term ‘education.’ We know from long experience that no one can claim to be truly educated who lacks basic knowledge and skills in the arts.

For over 30 years The Ritz Theatre Discovery Series has partnered with educators throughout Northwest Ohio to provide programming to nurture the belief in connecting a robust curriculum with the contribution of the arts in preparing students for success in college, careers and citizenship. Studies indicate that students who are put in contact with the arts from the earliest ages are more likely to excel academically.

The Ritz Theatre Discovery Series presents four programs annually for various grade levels in accordance with the State of Ohio dictates that school-age children should be exposed to and offered the arts as part of their education. Special Study Guides precede each performance offering ways for teachers to tie the student’s experience to the classroom with activities that help them explore, ask questions, interact and better understand what they see.

A trip to The Ritz is a connection to the past and a special cultural adventure. Coming to this historic treasure makes powerful memories for students and adults alike.

The experience could be one of the most priceless events of the school year.
