Through The Frank M. Tait Foundation Discovery Series, the stage becomes a classroom–a place where theatre professionals partner with educators and parents to ignite students’ quest to discover more about the world and their place in it. Integrating the arts with other academic subjects, Discovery performances are held in the historic Victoria Theatre and annually reach nearly 30,000 students.
The Discovery Series features professionally produced theatre productions designed to assist educators and students in meeting the Ohio Department of Education Academic Standards and Benchmarks. Students and teachers can download detailed study guides to enhance their theatre experience both before and after the performance.
Workshops for students and teachers by theatre professionals, as well as scholarship and busing opportunities for schools with financial concerns, add to the extensive opportunities offered by The Frank M. Tait Foundation Discovery Series.
- Tickets will be $5 for the 2013-2014 season.
- Scholarship and busing opportunities are available for schools with financial concerns.

Come early or stay late, pack a lunch and choose one of our Frank M. Tait Foundation Discovery Workshops to make your visit to the Victoria Theatre even more valuable. Our re-designed (and customizable) workshops now offer an affordable way for you and your students to enhance the play-going experience by delving deeper into the themes and styles of particular performances. According to the President’s Committee on Arts and Humanities’ recent report, Reinvesting in Arts Education: Winning America’s Future through Creative Schools, arts education is key in developing essential 21st century skills. The performing arts workshops you see listed with each show use active techniques to expand your students’ creative and critical thinking skills, leadership and collaboration skills, communication and problem solving skills and so much more. Each one-hour workshop is $100 and is limited to 25 students. Workshops are available year-round and are able to travel to your school. Call (937) 228-7591, x3039 to schedule a workshop.
