In partnership with the education department of the Flynn Center in Burlington, the Spruce Peak Performing Art Centers Student Matinee Series connects children, teachers, and schools with the performing arts in deep and meaningful ways, bringing performances to Vermont that both complement school curriculum, and introduce students to new worlds they have never known before. The high-quality performances illustrate the dynamic relationship between the performing arts and history, literature, and world cultures. Free comprehensive study guides are posted online to help teachers, students, and parents prepare and reflect upon the performances.
