School Days at The Pavilion
Thursday, November 7 and Friday, November 8
Take a magical field trip to The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion where learning is not only fun, but awe-inspiring and eye-opening!
Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun – The Musical! brings to life the award-winning book by Maria Dismondy that teaches kids to have the courage to be themselves and promotes powerful discussions about treating others with respect and accepting differences.
How do the performances relate to my classroom?
Curriculum guides provided by the artists are available to help integrate performance content with your classroom curricula. Follow the links below to download the study guides.
Are there options for subsidized tickets and buses?
Subsidized tickets and busing is available for Title 1 Schools only. Please indicate on your reservation and email a letter stating your school’s Title 1 status to Ashley Gravois at email@example.com.
Will parent chaperones be allowed onsite?
Along with teachers, parent chaperones can attend the event with your school. The total of both TEACHERS and CHAPERONES must be included in the count on the reservation form. Wristbands for the adults will be mailed to your school in advance. Only adults with provided wristbands will be allowed into the venue. This is for the safety of your students. Please note that parents/guardians are not permitted to bring non-school age or stay-at-home children while acting as a chaperone for Children’s Festival.
Can my friends or family purchase tickets to attend school days?
School-day performances are not open to the public. Tickets are not available for the public for purchase.
What if it rains on our field trip day?
The event is rain or shine. All seating and activities are covered.
Can you accommodate students with disabilities?
Yes, please let us know of any students with special seating needs for hearing, visual or mobility impairments at the time you make your reservation so we can be sure to make arrangements to accommodate them.
Can my students have lunch at The Pavilion?
Yes! Students are welcome to bring their lunch and will have the opportunity to eat lunch in the seats during the performances. Please note, lunch is NOT provided by The Pavilion. Concession stands will be closed. No food or beverages will be sold at The Pavilion during school days. Schools wishing to eat lunch off-site must depart in their school buses. Buses cannot be left at The Pavilion if you go off property.
How do I know my reservation was received?
Once The Pavilion receives your reservation, an email confirmation will be sent to the designated teacher indicated on the reservation. If you do not receive an email confirmation within 2 business days, please contact Ashley Gravois at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if the performances I selected are already at capacity?
If the performances you have selected are already at capacity, The Pavilion will assign you another available performance most closely associated with your first choice. Please remember, school days fill up quickly and space is reserved on a first-come, first served basis.
How do we get to The Pavilion? Where do we go?
The Pavilion will send a teacher’s packet that includes bus signs, parking and seating information, a site map and your performance schedule the week before the event. After November 1, you will not be able to make any changes to your reservation including the number attending or bus count. We pre-arrange seating for the event and cannot accommodate last-minute changes.
