The foundation of the Straz Center’s educational programming is the Field Trip series. Each year students from public, private and home schools come to the Straz Center during the school day to enjoy high quality, age-appropriate productions. For a complete schedule of upcoming field trips, click here.
The Straz Center recognizes the challenges that FCAT poses to teachers in the State of Florida, and understands teachers’ reluctance to take students away from the classroom environment to attend performances during the school day. To enhance the educational connection between our shows and your curriculum, each Field Trip presentation is coded with the applicable Sunshine State Standards that the show and its corresponding study guide helps to meet.

Day at the Straz
Students and educators can receive a guided tour through both the public and backstage spaces of one of America's largest performing arts centers. During the tour, students will learn about performances and programs at the facility, discuss many theatrical points of interest, and hear colorful anecdotes about some of the many entertainers that have performed on our five stages. After the tour, students will participate in a theater-based workshop geared toward their grade/age level. Through this workshop, students and teachers will gain exposure to the performing arts, and strengthen the arts education experience. Day at the Straz activities are recommended to be held in conjunction with field trip performances, but they can take place on their own.
