iLEAD Exploration: Lancaster Performing Arts Center Field Trips

We are excited to announce that we have organized field trips to the Lancaster Performing Arts Center this school year to watch a variety of shows through their Arts for Youth program. Tickets for these shows will be only $5 per person. A parent must attend with learners and siblings may attend as long they are old enough to sit quietly through a show (ages 4 and up). 

In order to purchase these tickets as a group, we must pay for the tickets in advance. Below you will find a list of shows along with dates and times for each showing. Please take note of which shows you and your family would like to attend, how many tickets you will need for each showing, and turn in the total amount for your tickets to your facilitator by Thursday, November 3rd in order to reserve your spots. There will be a limited number of tickets available for each show and your tickets will be reserved on a first come first serve basis.  There is a chance that tickets to the more popular shows may sell out so in that case, you will be given a refund.
