Fall is definitely in the air as “The Beat Goes On” at the Schauer Center. As we celebrate our 21st anniversary season, we have a wonderful selection of Schauer logo items now in and for sale. Whether for yourself, a child or grandchild in the Schauer School of the Arts or a Christmas gift for a theater fan, there is something for everyone. Check out the display in the lobby to see the T-shirts, hoodie sweatshirts, zip fleece, hats, tote bags, drawstring bags and key chains. Most of these include our 21st anniversary logo and will only be available this season. Items can be purchased at the box office or anytime the front office is open.
We had a wonderful summer season outdoors in the new Courtyard and are now back in the Ruth Knoll Theater with a very full October. Two popular rescheduled shows are happening this month with “Top of the World,” a Karen Carpenter tribute and “Songs and Stories of Neil Diamond". Thanks to all of you who so patiently held onto your tickets for the new dates. We also have a unique Canadian singer/songwriter, performing dogs and a tribute to Harry Truman by his own grandson. It’s a great month at the Schauer!
Schauer School of the Arts
Our fall season in the School of the Arts is underway. Remember, it’s not just for kids! Kids and adults can do more than just observe the arts at the Schauer. There are still fall opportunities for adults in Wine and Art classes and adult dance! This is for everyone at all levels – check out the opportunities to paint or learn a little Rumba (with rum punch) or Swing (with Scotch). You can also expand your horizons and experience unique cultural dance forms like Kathak, a North Indian classical dance form or try an eclectic evening of Latin dance fused with dances of the African diaspora. These workshops are just one evening each, a short commitment to try something new. If you have questions, contact our education coordinator, Dani Kuepper, for all the details. No previous experience necessary!
As we re-open the theater and watch the evolving Covid crisis, the Schauer Center is committed to the health and safety of its staff, volunteers, performers and guests. Please check the website or call the box office for the latest guidelines. As of this date, the Schauer Center reminds all guests entering the building that the CDC recommends that everyone wear a mask indoors for public events. Masks will be provided for those who choose to wear one. Please remember that as local Covid statistics and CDC guidelines change, our plans are subject to frequent updates. The policy could also change from show to show based on performer guidelines or requirements. The Schauer Center will do its best to keep you updated and notify you of any last-minute changes. Our goal is to stay open, stay safe and continue to share entertaining and inspirational performances with all of you.
