We have an amazing lineup of touring shows for 2016-17
The CENTER offers quality touring productions that are self-contained and travel to any school or organization in the Hudson Valley. These productions are design to complement New York State curricula.
Current productions include "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (two versions available: elementary and middle/high school), "Rip Van Winkle," (two versions available) an interactive performance that re-tells Washington Irving's memorable tale, and a brand new version of "The Wizard of Oz" where audience members become Munchkins and help save the day!
In additing to Touring Shows, The CENTER offers a wide array of on-site field trips that incorporate lively productions with NYS education curriculum.
