Home-schooled students in and around Carmel don’t need to fret when it comes to exciting field trips outside of the home.
On Friday, Feb. 28 the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel will host an all access field trip for homeschoolers and their families. This is in conjunction with the Italian acting company Teatro Di Piazza, which will be performing the interactive sequences of “Blue! The Mediterranean Sea.”
Palladium Director of External Relations John Hughey said this is a unique opportunity for theatergoers because of the fun-loving nature of “Blue!”
The show allows students of all ages to intermingle with cast members on and off stage, which will help foster a love and appreciation for the theater.
In addition to the matinee, home-schooled students are invited to a sound & light presentation in the Palladium concert hall, offered by the Center’s production department.
Students can bring sack lunches on the day of the matinee and eat inside the Center’s Robert Adam Room.
Seating will be limited to 102 guests, so Hughey said those interested should buy their tickets soon.
Tickets cost $15 for adults and $8 per child for those 12 years old and younger. Families must purchase tickets from the Palladium box office by Friday, Feb. 7.

Students can choose from either of these timelines when attending the field trip.
