Schooltime Series

Each season, Angelina Artrs Alliance provides a diversity of performing arts experineces for students in grades Pre-K through 12.  Professional artists/educators travel from around the world to perform during the school day for local students and teachers.

Each show has connections to school curricula and offers a unique opportunity for teachers to bring their subjects 'to life' on stage in a way their students will never forget.  Study guides are available for most shows allowing teachers to integrate the arts into their lesson plans.  The shows are imaginatevly conceived, artistically produced and provide relevant, entertaining and enriching experiences for students.

In 2017-18, three outstanding productions, emphasizing Math, Ecology and the importance of family and friends will come to the Temple Theater stage:


Steve Trash's Ecology is Awesome

How I Became a Pirate
