Kaleidoscope Series for Youth

We're excited to announce the 2018-2019 Kaleidoscope Series for Youth. All shows are now displayed in the below list. Tickets are now available to order here.  Please note we're implementing a new ordering process this year. All tickets will be ordered online through UNItix.

Gallagher Bluedorn’s various educational programs broaden youth’s understanding and participation in the arts among communities throughout Iowa and serves the Center’s mission, to inspire. The Kaleidoscope Series creates a deeper understanding of classroom subjects, serving as a supplementary tool in teaching core curriculum. In many cases the performances create an entry point for discussion of challenging material.  

The Kaleidoscope Series strives to provide youth multiple opportunities to experience a wide range of the performing arts, to serve underserved rural communities of Eastern Iowa, and to accommodate over 35,000 students each year.  In March of 2017 we reached a significant milestone, 500,000 kids experiencing the arts through our program. Learn more at kaleidoscopeseries.com.

Reserve your tickets for the 2018-2019 now!
