Virtual Field Trips

Carolina Theatre of Durham, Inc. is taking this time as an opportunity to re-imagine our education program. We have committed that we will live-stream the 2020-21 Arts Discovery Educational Series as Virtual Field Trips.

We remain committed to arts education and to the safety of our audiences during this unprecedented time.  Our venue is temporarily closed because of public health safety measures.

Our revised program schedule will be announced on Monday, September 21.

Registration will begin on Monday, October 5 at 10:00 a.m.


Our Goal

Engage our young audiences through captivating on-stage performances and film screenings to foster learning.


Our Vision

Establish the Carolina Theatre as a leading field trip destination for performing arts experiences for young audiences and families.


Education Goals

  • Present high-quality performing arts, theater, dance, music and film for young audiences.
  • Enhance teacher awareness of the arts as an effective medium for cultivating student appreciation of creative expression, academic learning and artistic discipline.
  • Provide an affordable field trip destination for performing arts experiences to complement curriculum goals for both schools and community organizations that serve children and their families.
  • Promote the arts as a vehicle for greater understanding and respect for all.

All Durham Public Schools (DPS) reservations will be made by the school-designated Arts Liaison. The Arts Liaison was appointed by each school principal to coordinate this effort. Please contact your principal for further action.
