Since 1991, the Butler Arts Center has presented curriculum-based, culturally diverse, fully accessible, and age appropriate performances and programs to all-aged audiences. Live performances and programs enrich audiences with a variety of learning styles and approaches, exposing and introducing students to specific art forms (dance, music, theatre, visual arts, and media). At the Butler Arts Center, our commitment is to providing a positive artistic experience through live performance, ultimately educating while entertaining.
Attending a performance or program is more than a day at a performance hall or theatre. Experiencing it LIVE allows new ways of thinking about our lives and our world. Having a story or book come to life on a stage inspires us to look at and engage with the characters and setting. Audiences who see live science demonstrations or historical re-enactments connect action and images to deeper understandings of the content. Bringing literature and school curriculum to life in front of students make challenging subjects more accessible and real. When attending a live performance, we are encouraged to imagine, create, innovate and unite as we share a similar experience and connection with others.
Teachers share how their students continue to talk about attending a live matinee performance, months or even years after visiting the Butler Arts Center. Over ONE MILLION students, teachers and guests have attended matinee performances at the Butler Arts Center since 1991. Can you imagine over a million people talking about live performances they have experienced? Perhaps YOU have visited Clowes Memorial Hall to witness a LIVE performance or program. Chances are you have!
