For 27 years, the Butler Arts Center has welcomed over one million students, teachers, and parents to experience live performances. Here are a few things they have shared abou the value of sharing the arts with students:
"Thank you very much for offering this educational experience! He kept the attention of the audience with the costume, acting and visuals while still able to teach some very important concepts (STEM)."
"Excellent show! I felt like we were watching a Broadway performance for kids. Very talented cast!"
"All trips to Clowes have been successful. Well organized getting buses in and out and the shows have been great."
"A beloved series came to life right before our eyes!"
"I think the staff at Butler do a fantastic job! It is always very organized"
"It was the first time most of our students had been to Clowes and many the first time at a live theater production. They really enjoyed seeing the book come to life! We had also really enjoyed the Eric Carle show when it was based on his higher-leveled books."
"My students learned how to attend a live show."
"My students were so engaged. Laughing and loving it. Especially the dragon! It made for a class discussion about times we have been scared."
"I am trying to develop a love of books with my students, so seeing the play definitely helped with this. For “Read-in Day” I asked the students to bring in their favorite book to share and one of my students brought in the Stinky Cheese Man. He asked his mom to buy it for him."
"Wonderful seats! The kids were able to interact with the characters!"
"Very organized field trip experience and the programs are always top notch! Thank you for providing these opportunites for students."
