School-Time Matinee SeriesThe Bologna Performing Arts Center’s arts education office continues to monitor the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are an educator or administrator, we welcome your feedback on your reopening plans for the upcoming school year and how the arts education office can offer enriching arts experiences for your students while maintaining social distancing measures. Please contact our offices at 662-846-4844 if you have any questions or would like to share your district’s plans, especially for the upcoming fall semester. The School-Time Matinee Series is an arts education initiative at the Bologna Performing Arts Center intended for school children and educators. STMS performances are scheduled for the spring and fall semester of each academic year, and usually take place at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. on weekday mornings. Study guides are available for download in the section below that accompany the performances. Bringing students to the theatre teachers them so much more than simply the narrative playing out on the stage. Students who experience live theatre participate in experiential learning that elevates the subject matter and offers a unique take on more traditional instruction methods. Plus, you’re not just teaching your students about the content of the performance. You’re teaching them about theatre procedure—the how, not just the what—and part of that lesson includes how to be a good audience member. Tickets for the 2020-2021 School-Time Matinee Series will go on sale in the fall semester of 2020!
