$5,000 Sponsorship

Help bring learning to life for young minds!  This series of daytime performances busses over 15,000 schoolchildren a year to the Weinberg Center from Frederick County Public Schools.  This program has been active for 25 years, and brings nearly every Frederick County family in touch with the Weinberg at some point in their childhood.  Recent examples of curriculum-related performances have included: Freedom Train (dramatizing the lives of slaves traveling through the Underground Railroad), Shakespeare Alive! and Super-Scientific Circus.  Studies show at-risk students who have access to the arts in or out of school have better academic results, better workforce opportunities, and more civic engagement, according to a recent NEA report.  Partner with us to bring learning to life for diverse students in our area through the smARTS Series.
