School Time Theatre

Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Performances Postponed:

The Center for Rural Development is closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19. We take seriously the health and safety of all concertgoers, event attendees, and staff. In consideration of local public health concerns, the March 26th and March 27th performances of Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure have been postponed. The Center is working closely with RedTail Entertainment to reschedule the dates of these performances and updates will be provided as soon as they are available. We look forward to providing you with the safest, and most enjoyable experience while at The Center.

 

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. All performances are open to the public.

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!

Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium

The creators of Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live want to take your family on an all new adventure – this time to the bottom of the ocean. Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure is an immersive experience that invites you to jump in and explore unknown ocean depths where prehistoric marine reptiles lived eons ago – and maybe live still today! Erth shows are at the forefront of family entertainment, using actors, technology, puppets, science and imagination to create an amazing visual experience that connects young audiences to the real science of paleontology. www.prehistoricaquarium.com
