Education Series 2014-2015

We're pleased to announce the 2015-2016 Education Series at Algonquin Arts Theatre. Popular titles return, including Miss Nelson is Missing and Henry & Mudge, and we're excited to present new titles to our audience including Chicken Dance and Big Test Success, a comedy show designed to help students take some of the stress out of tests.

All shows listed are on sale now. Many of these titles will sell out so we encourage you to make reservations as soon as possible. Our color brochure will arrive in August, just in time to go back to school.

For more information and to make reservations, contact Julie Nagy at 732.528.9224 or email julie@algonquinarts.org.

We look forward to seeing you next school year!

Sincerely,
Julie Nagy
Director of Arts Education

When Miss Nelson unexpectedly does not come to school one day, the class gets the strictest substitute they have ever met: Miss Viola Swamp! The search is on for Miss Nelson. Hopefully the students of Room 207 will find her before its too late.
