An Educational Break From The Classroom

Teachers and Admninistrators,

The Dallas Theater, located in downtown Dallas, is excited to offer an affordable, educational, and a truly professional theatre experience for kids of all ages! This November and March, Bright Star Touring Theatre Group will be here hosting wonderful field trips. Bright Star specializes in literary, curriculum, and character education based programs. Their shows are exciting, engaging, and interactive! Each show comes with curriculum standards as well as a study guide to reinforce the character builders and standards learned.

The price for each student and chaperone (teachers are free) is $6. Each show lasts approximately one hour. We recommend packing a lunch and stopping by Sara Babb Park or White Oak Park before or after your show for a fun low cost day. Space is limited so please contact us today to reserve your spot!

Below is the information on the five shows we will be offering:

National Curriculum Standards

Dreaming of America

(Best for Grades 3 – 6)

The American story is the story of people who dreamed of a new home, migrants and immigrants who faced tremendous difficulty. From the earliest settlers of Jamestown and the Pilgrims of Massachusetts, to the immigrants of Ellis island; from Dust Bowl farmers, to those who come to America to find a better life in modern times, this story explores what it means to be a stranger in a new land.
