The Center has been awarded a $1,500 grant from the Ann and Abe Effron Fund at the Community Foundation of Dutchess County. This Grant will allow the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck to present two programs in its Exploration and Science Series.

The center offers nearly 40 weekday field trip performances a year to area students.

“Fun with Energy,” with artist Jeff Boyer, is scheduled for Wednesday and April 18 at 10 and 11:30 a.m. The program, designed for kids in kindergarten through eighth grade, features interactive demonstrations with students where they learn about sound, light, solar power and electric energy.

“Lewis & Clark’s Expedition,” by Broadway actor Patrick Garner, will take place March 14 at 10 and 11:30 a.m. Garner casts audience members in the roles of Lewis & Clark’s “corps of discovery” to help them understand the mission to explore the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase. The program is intended for kids in kindergarten through grade five.

They also offer a number of weekday performances of various plays. It's a wonderful way for children to be exposed to local theater. Closer and less expensive then Broadway.
