Scholastic Tours

Park Playhouse offers annual opportunities to introduce students to the theatre at a low cost! We are proud to bring a series of scholastic tours to elementary schools across the Capital Region and beyond!

All of our Scholastic Touring Productions are suitable for pre-school and elementary students of all ages. Prior to our visit, you will receive an activity packet to prepare your students for the content of the show and to introduce them to some of the fundamental elements of theatre.

To book a tour performance at your school, contact Director of Education Ashley-Simone Kirchner at or by phone at (518) 434-2035 x102. Our touring productions can fit into just about any space at your school, large and small, and will play at your institution for a very reasonable fee - only $750 for a performance!

The space race is on again in this funny, educational revue. It is July 16, 1969 - and Apollo 11 is just about to launch. Jenny, a galaxy enthusiast, begins to recount her experience with the space race and the story of how America found its way to its place among the stars. The struggles and triumphs of key players on the country's climb, such as John Glenn, Neil Armstrong and even the workers who built the rockets, are visited before we see Apollo 11 take to the skies.
