Holiday Musical Field Trip
Since the 1980s, the Wagon Wheel has offered daytime performances of their annual Holiday Musical to schoolchildren. These field trip performances give students the opportunity to see live, professional theatre at a low cost. Schools from across the region attend each year including schools from Allen, Elkhart, Kosciusko, Marshall, Wabash, and Whitley counties. More than 4,000 students experience the magic and educational power of live theatre through this program. For many of these students, it is their first time attending a live theatre performance. Schools interested in learning more are invited to fill out this form. The Holiday Musical Field Trip program is funded by grants and individual donations.
Outside the Classroom Walls
At the Wagon Wheel, we know that the arts are a vital part of a strong education and building children into productive and creative adults. Our Wagon Wheel Conservatory program comes alongside our local educators to provide arts education outside the traditional classroom walls. Schools and educators are encouraged to reach out to Kira Lace Hawkins, Education Director, for more information about partnering at firstname.lastname@example.org.
