Whether a performance is virtual or in-person, one thing that hasn’t changed is that every performance is carefully selected to meet the highest artistic standards while complementing your school's curriculum. All performances meet the Curriculum Frameworks as established by the Massachusetts Department of Education. These performances present a world view of the arts and can augment curricula in the areas of geography, history, science, social studies, language studies, and fine and performing arts.

Please note the following before registering for a virtual performance: All virtual performances are broadcast on an unlisted YouTube channel.  Please check with your school’s technology department to insure your school and student devices can be set up previous to the show to access YouTube and the link. Free access to the performance is limited to the scheduled day of the selected performance and will start at 10 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. Please check to make sure your school and students will be able to schedule time to view the performance during this window.

An additional "housekeeping" note: During the past year we've noticed that spam filtering services have become more unreliable. Emails to some of our schools and teachers were ending up in junk or spam folders. To ensure delivery please make sure facbox@umass.edu is on your approved senders list.
