Opening the Way to Learning Through the Arts!
Green Bay, Wis.—UW-Green Bay’s Weidner Center for the Performing Arts announced its 2021-2022 Stage Doors Education Series on August 24, 2021. These daytime matinee performances provide meaningful educational opportunities for students throughout Northeast Wisconsin and Upper Michigan.
The Stage Doors series kicks off in February 2022 to coincide with the second half of the school year. A limited number of titles will be offered, as schools continue to transition back to full-time in classroom instruction.
“When the series begins in February, it will be almost two years since we last welcomed school groups to the Weidner Center for a daytime matinee,” said Executive & Artistic Director of the Weidner Center, Kelli Strickland. “Live theatre and arts education are such an important part of how we learn and grow. We’re looking forward to the energy and excitement that student audiences bring.”
