READ IT, SEE IT, HEAR IT, BE IT
The BPAC Arts Education Office is proud to announce the fifth year of our integrated year-round, arts and literacy initiative, Read It, See It, Hear It, Be It. In partnership with the Delta Arts Alliance and GRAMMY Museum Mississippi, the BPAC will offer reduced priced books for students for only $1 who attend the matinee performance. These books, on which the performances are based, will offer students and teachers a chance to dive deeper into the study of narrative and artistic adaption. Please note that books are sold on a first-come, first served basis. Study guides are available for free on our website to tie in with the unit, and, free performance workshops will be offered to groups on a first-come, first serve basis to coincide with the program. For schools reserving books within a forty mile radius of Cleveland, MS, the books will be delivered to you two weeks prior to the performance. For schools reserving books outside of the immediate service area, books will be delivered to your buses on the day of the performance. If you are interested in receiving your books prior to the show, contact the arts education office at 662-846-4844 to arrange shipping details.
FREE PERFORMANCE WORKSHOPS
Arts education workshops will be available as part of our Read It, See It, Hear It, Be It program in partnership with the Delta Arts Alliance and Grammy Museum Mississippi. These workshops will run for approximately one hour and are free for students who attend the School-Time Matinee Series performances, but reservations MUST be made ahead of time as there are limited capacities and age restrictions on workshop activities. Please check bolognapac.com/education for detailed information on the performance workshops for the 2021- 2022 School-Time Matinee Series season.
ADD A GRAMMY MUSEUM MISSISSIPPI TOUR
Make a day of your trip! Performances last approximately one hour, but the fun doesn’t have to stop once you leave the theatre! Inquire about one of our free performance workshops, or add a GRAMMY Museum Mississippi tour for an additional $5 per student. One chaperone for every 10 students is admitted free, and 1 bus driver per 20 students is admitted free. Grammy Museum MS also offers lunch
