School Time Theatre

School Time Theatre, presented by Lake Cumberland Performing Arts in partnership with the Center for Rural Development, seeks to share the magic of the arts with students and adults in Southern and Eastern Kentucky.

All School Time Theatre programs are selected with two goals in mind: education and quality. Many are based on familiar children’s literature or historic characters, emphasize positive values, or introduce students to unfamiliar art forms.  In addition to the sheer enjoyment of the arts, attending live theatre has been shown to fulfill or enhance many of the goals of the average school curriculum.  “Thematic Connections” information is provided for each performance, and free study guides are made available.

To stay informed of all of The Center’s upcoming concerts, shows, and special events as they are announced, SIGN UP for our email mailing list!
