School Shows & Classroom Connections

Our daytime performances for school groups make the magic of live performance available to students throughout the North Bay. School Shows highlight a wide-range of genres and cultural experiences, from traditional dance and drama to a variety of music—world, contemporary, and classical.

Our School Shows target grades PK through 12, and all of the performances align with and support state-mandated curriculum in all core subjects. We’re thrilled to open our doors again for in-person shows for students in fall 2022. LBC follows all California Department of Health requirements with regard to Covid-19. See schedules and supportive show resources in the tabs below.

Classroom Connections

We strive to provide school groups with quality performances at affordable prices, especially at this difficult time for our community. As part of our goal to keep our programs accessible, we offer Evert Person’s ArtReach, a free and reduced-priced ticket program.

Set the Stage offers free online resources, including study guides, classroom discussion points, and activities to prepare students for their in-person or virtual field trip with LBC.

From Page to Stage works directly with select schools with at-risk populations to promote literacy and instill a life-long love of reading early in students’ careers.

Extend your field trip to LBC with Art Talks!

Take your students on a self-guided or docent-led tour of our Sculpture Garden. Thoughtfully restored following the 2017 firestorms, our Sculpture Garden is designed to reflect the local Sonoma County landscape. In the Garden, there are two picnic tables with smaller versions of the sculpture elements that you see in the landscape. If you like, have students find new ways to arrange the colorful pieces. Then please leave what they have made for the next visitors to enjoy.

You can sign up for a free docent-led tour right on your School Show application or contact us by email or phone at 707.800.7504!
