WINONA, Minn. — Schools are invited to bring student groups to matinees of Saint Mary’s University Page Series performances — featuring a full season of music, dance, theatre and even giant puppets.
Admission is $2 per person, including both students and chaperones, and payment is due upon arrival. Schools are asked to limit chaperones to one adult per 10 students when possible.
Two matinee shows are available this fall. Buckets and Tap Shoes, a lively performance that features tap dance with European and African influences, will begin at 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 2. In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre will perform Beneath the Surface, which explores water issues through performance, music and video, at 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 23.
Teachers or school administrators can contact Jennifer Fanello at (507) 457-1716 to make reservations for their school groups.
The Page Series matinee programming is supported in part by Target. The visit of In the Heart of the Beast is supported by the Minnesota State Arts Board grant “Arts Across Minnesota.”
