The Discovery Series is the cornerstone program of the Hobby Center’s educational initiatives. This program touches the lives of more than 15,000 students annually through professional music, dance and theatre performances.
The Discovery Educational Series offers field trip opportunities to Houston-area schools by partnering with local arts groups such as Karen Stokes Dance, Musiqa, Hope Stone Dance, WindSync, Main Street Theatre, The Ensemble Theatre and Ars Lyrica Houston. We select engaging and enriching programs that promote social values, moral integrity and reflect the cultural diversity of our community. The Hobby Center works with educators to integrate the arts into the core curriculum across all subject areas, which not only gives the students a rich theatergoing experience but also aids in the development of critical thinking skills and sparks curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.
The Discovery Sensory Friendly Series is designed especially for individuals with autism or other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities. During these programs, patrons enjoy shows with family and friends in a welcoming, inclusive and relaxed space.
New to the Discovery family this year is Discovery on the Road. This innovative community based program will take programming from the Hobby Center campus directly into the community by offering performances at libraries, community centers, parks and schools.
All Discovery Series programs are offered entirely free of cost to participating schools and families. For more information click on the links below or please contact Judi Stallings at 713.315.2412 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
