Youth Matinee Series @ Stephens Auditorium
Apr 5 @ 12:30 pm

Since1999, the Iowa State Center’s Youth Matinee Series has connected children, parents, teachers, and schools with the performing arts in profound and meaningful ways, bringing performances to central Iowa that complement the school curriculum. This programming introduces students to new worlds and new ways of self-expression. By bringing your students/children to a live performing arts experience, you are giving them the gifts of broadened perspective and experiential learning. Live theater ignites the imagination in a unique way, opening the door to a greater understanding of the world and a life-long love of the arts.

Everyone is welcome! Performances are open to the public.

Admission is $5 at the door. Many performances sell out, so we encourage pre-registration to ensure you’ll get a seat. But mostly, we hope come to the show and share the arts with the young ones in your life.
