We love to learn by immersion and we Homeschooled our family of 4 kids (ages 23, 19, 14, & 10). Our two oldest are now in college with scholarships and most recently our oldest just got a job at NASA - JPL in Aerospace Engineering and our 2nd is going to Nursing school and is on a acrobatic/gymnastic team that performs all over the country even at NBA halftime shows. As I said we love taking field trips to bring us closer to what we are studying and in my coop I am on the field trip committee. Yesterday we went to see the Peking Acrobats at Goucher College, a Arts on Stage production. 30 people in our group attended with 995 seats in the theatre sold out to predominantly school children with their families and teachers. The show was Amazing and the Peking Acrobats were incredible! Seating and tickets were a breeze and the staff was well organized putting forth the message to Bring Arts back into the School. Prior to the show we printed off the study guide and studied China and the setting for the life of the Acrobats and compared it to our life in America with the similarities and the differences. The 15 page study guide was very comprehensive on the geography, culture, history, political setting and economy of China and even including vocabulary words. I would highly recommend this nonprofit to homeschools and schools and anyone with an interest. Schedule of shows can be found at www.artsonstage.org for a program that will be suitable for your family and for all ages and preferences.

We are a home school family, and my three children and I love field trips to Arts on Stage! We have seen several performances and each one has left us amazed. The venue at Goucher College is very nice. The acting teams are incredible. I am very thankful for an affordable way for my kids to experience high-quality art in music and acting!

I've taken my kids to three or four Arts on Stage LTD shows (ask my 7 year old which ones and when - he remembers every one in detail!) and we have had a wonderful experience. The shows are varied so we can always find ones that appeal to us and are on our level. The performances are superb! The events are always well managed - easy in, easy out. We love them! And will keep going year after year!

I am a retired teacher and a grandmother. Before retiring I found Arts on Stage and took my class and had a fantastic experience. Most of the teachers in my small private school then went as well. The programs cover Literature, History, Math, Science & Cultures. Now that I am retired I am now taking my homeschooled grandchildren. They love going and the programs undergird what is being taught at home and in such a fun way.

Arts on Stage presents many known and unknown children's stories in play format for younger audiences. It introduces kids to multicultural dances and famous historical figures in entertaining and easily accessible ways that allow children to gain a wealth of knowledge that they might otherwise find to difficult to understand or too boring to pay attention to. It is great for homeschooled children as well as traditionally educated students alike. My kids really like see the performances and so do we. We attend one to two shows a month during the school year. I wish they would expand and start offering shows in the summer!

I am a homeschooling mother who jumped at the chance to open up my child's world to the arts and we couldn't be more pleased. The presentation was wonderful and my son didn't stop smiling. He loved getting to interact with the cast as they drew the audience into helping the characters! This was our first time attending and I know it won't be our last.... we've already made more reservations for this school year and can't wait to share with more of our friends!

I brought a group of 3rd graders to see one their shows and was very pleased with the performance. The show was very informative and engaging. The kids loved every minute of it and learned alot as well. I also appreciated that they included my deaf and hard of hearing students by providing an interpreter and bringing one of them up on stage as a participant.

I am the Director of a preschool and Daycare in Harford County. Our four-year-olds have been attending Arts on Stage programs for many many years. The staff children and parents look forward to this event all year long. All of the shows that we have seen are great. The staff at Arts on Stage does a wonderful job of organizing such a huge show. We look forward to our visit in March of 2013!
