Historical Theatre Tours for Schools

.

.

I have had the pleasure of taking [my students] to The Fox Theater for a tour for the past 4 years.  We go to several venues downtown, and by far, The Fox Theater is the highlight!  Our tour guides have painted an amazing picture of the history and architecture of the Fox…  Students will talk about the ghost stories and all the names written on the walls of the dressing room for days.  Our tour guides are always extremely knowledgeable, and very patient with the students.  Even our chaperones love the tour. We all look forward to our future tours!”

Bring your students to get up close and personal with our beautiful and highly unique 1930’s Southwestern Art Deco theatre.  Whether in lounges or lobbies, the stage or dressing rooms, each space opens an experiential window into history.  We’ll explore Tucson’s past, spectacular feats of construction and restoration, the history of showbiz in the US, and the marvels of a top-notch working theatre.  You may even get to meet a resident ghost or two…

While you’re downtown, why not pair a theatre tour with other wonderful educational field trip options that are right around the corner?

You could walk over to The Tucson Museum of Art, where teaching artists can guide your students in hands-on art workshops built around the visual arts components they just saw at The Fox Theatre (e-mail here if you’re interested).  You could also book an Adventure Learning Program at The Children’s Museum or do some volunteer arts and crafts at Ben’s Bells.
