All school groups, including homeschools, will reserve tickets to Arts Discovery performances through Eventbrite. You may edit your reservation until the show date to allow for changes in attendance numbers or special needs.

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. Please note: We received funding specifically for a limited number of complimentary tickets for Durham Public Schools students to attend Arts Discovery Educational Series performances. Once the complimentary ticket limit is reached, DPS will be responsible for paying $6/ticket for additional tickets.
