Arts-Based Learning

One of the Palace’s primary objectives involves developing educational programs for diverse audiences, both young and old alike. This has led to the creation of our educational history class, hands-on internship programs, and our arts and academic integrated after-school programs.

After-School Programs

Since 2007, the Palace Theater has offered middle and high school students the opportunity to participate in after-school theater arts appreciation programs based on one of our Broadway presentations that season.

We look to provide students with qualitative arts experiences that encourage creative thought, critical thinking, positive self-expression and the desire to learn. In addition to studying the arts for art’s sake, experiencing and making works of art benefits students in their intellectual, personal and social development.
