“We are so excited to kick off our “Arts in the Schools” programming by bringing Kentucky Shakespeare back to all Henderson County elementary schools!” Alex Caudill, Executive Director of the Henderson Area Arts Alliance said, “Thanks to our generous sponsors, we are able to offer our educational outreach programs for free.”
HAAA will also offer a special pre-performance of Cirque Mechanics: Pedal Punk for area third graders on Tuesday, November 14 at 9:00 a.m. at the Preston Art Center. The evening show will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the same location. Tickets are $35 and $25 for adults and $15 for all students. The show, which features circus acrobatics, mechanical wonders – and a bit of clowning around – is perfect for all ages.
Tickets to the evening performance of this show are available at haaa.org or by calling the box office at 270-831-9800.
“Our partnership with Henderson County Schools, that has existed for over 20 years, continues to grow as we change more students’ lives through the arts. We hope everyone will bring their whole family out to see Cirque Mechanics on November 14,” Caudill said.
The show is presented by Field & Main Bank, The Raymond B. Preston Family Foundation, Gibbs Die Casting Corporation, Audubon Metals LLC, Brenntag, and Ervin Cable Construction.
