Our weekday Arts4Youth series allows students to see professional dance, theatre and music artists and make connections to lessons in the classroom. All shows include a pre-show study guide and most feature a post-show conversation with the artists.


INSIGHTS events occur before and/or after many shows and explore the themes presented on stage. FREE for ticket holders, INSIGHTS can feature Penn faculty members or Penn student performing arts groups, and sometimes, the artists themselves!
