The Auditorium Theatre is thrilled to present its American Legacy Student Matinee Series which celebrates the life and legacy of 3 great Americans – Twyla Tharp, Martin Luther King Jr., and Alvin Ailey. As a part of this series, we are excited to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Your students will experience the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream when they see and hear this high-octane version of Handel’s Messiah. Join us for Too Hot’s 11th appearance on our historic stage! Recommended for all grades.
K-12 groups are welcome! You will also receive a FREE Classroom Companion that includes activities to help align the performance experience with Common Core learning.
Tickets are $10 per person. There is also a one-time $10 service fee applied to each group order. Everyone, including chaperones, must pay the admission fee. Seating for all student events is assigned on a first-paid, first-seated basis, and we are now taking reservations!
If you have any questions, or want to make your reservation, please call the sales office at 312-341-2357, or send an email to email@example.com.
Extend your student matinee experience with an exciting residency opportunity that directly connects the performance back to your classroom!: TOO HOT TO HANDEL MUSIC RESIDENCIES AND WORKSHOPS: In these one day workshops and week-long residencies, Teaching Artists partner with CPS classrooms to explore how they can unite as a community to create music that sends a message. Students are challenged to make active choices as an ensemble and as individuals that change the “sounds” of their own community. Learn ways to better prepare your students for their Auditorium Experience by participating in an Engage, Connect, Create! Professional Development Workshop!
These two-hour workshops (taking place at participating schools upon request), allow teachers to explore the work of art they will be seeing at the Auditorium Theatre using the methodology laid out by our year-long ArtsXChange Program: ENGAGING students with the performance, CONNECTING the work of art to topics being explored on in the academic classroom, and finally CREATING an arts activity or arts-based lesson that can be used to prepare their students for the field trip experience. For more information on any of these opportunities, contact the Department of Creative Engagement at 312-341-2359, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
