All participating teachers will be given a study guide in advance to prepare their students. The guides are also available at ekucenter.com/school-shows.

"These events are a part of our outreach to the community," said Interim Center Director Jill Price. "It gives students the opportunity to see a performance they might not otherwise be able to see. We offer special pricing for non-college-age students only, as we negotiated these prices with the understanding they are for K-12 students and are educational shows."
