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!

My family enjoys and looks forward to the many shows that are offered by Arts on Stage. We have seen some fabulous shows! With an 8 year old and a 4 year old, the shows are timed perfectly, so they are capable of sitting down to watch them, The prices are fantastic! I love that they are totally geared for the kids audience, but I thoroughly enjoy them too! I highly recommend going to these performances!

We like the fact that Arts on Stage uses theatre to educate others about Black history. The story was both entertaining and enlightening. The talented actors made the characters come to life. Their singing motivated the audience and added depth to the story of how the slaves were freed. Our only wish would be that the sets were more detailed and elaborate. Otherwise, the show was delightful.

I ama teacher for students with special needs. The play we saw, "The Hundred Dresses", was really well put together. The kids did seem to enjoy it, but would have liked it more if it had song and dance. We are only allowed to take trips on Wednesdays, and there was not much to choose from on that day.

I am thrilled that there is a program like Arts on Stage available. It makes the theater so much more accessible to the "average" class as well and giving a unique opportunity to so many schools and families. The plays are well rehearsed and draw the audience in, encouraging participation. The staff is helpful and courteous. And the kids not only have a fun visual experience but there are educational materials available to flesh out discussion! Highly recommended!

I am a retired Elementary School Principal now helping to raise a grandson. My 5 year old grandson and I recently saw "The Wizard of Oz" production. It was quite an experience. Our seats were phenomenal and the acting was excellent. The scenery, the props used, the music and the story adaptation was phenomenal.

We are very fortunate to have such an outstanding group within our own area. I have now shared this with our PATH group ( Parents at Home) group and I am certain performances at nearby locations will be seen by even more preschoolers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage more plays within the state...publicizing to preschools as well as K-8 schools.

My husband and I took our granddaughters to Arts on Stage Ltd's performance of "Cinderella". We all loved it. The music, the actors, the costumes, the stage props were excellent. The staff was efficient and organized. It was a wonderful experience and we will definitely bring our grandkids back for other shows. Good work!

not need to do anything. Arts on Stage Ltd. is very organized and efficient. (i.e., tickets, communication and confirmation of my reservation, quickly moved large groups of children to their seats, started on time. All efficiently performed) Presented/advertised the stage performance exactly as it was performed! Excellent.
