2020-21 Streaming Educational Programs
Charlotte’s Web: April 12-23
Charlotte’s Web is based on E.B. White’s loving story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte. Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman. She will create a “miracle.” Spinning the words “Some Pig” in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig but also ensures his place on the farm forever.
This treasured tale, featuring madcap and endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love and the true meaning of friendship. The stream will be available Monday, April 12 through Friday, April 23. To register for this event, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Since the grand opening of RiverCenter in 2002, education has been an integral component of our mission. RiverCenter is proud to have served students and educators in our region with a variety of experiences and resources that integrate the arts into curriculum. Each season we have typically presented six titles in our ArtsReach Matinee series that are often tied to great works of literature for young people. These theatrical events showcase innovative presentations of both literature and STEAM content. We believe that it is not sufficient to simply present high quality productions for school-age children, therefore each performance is accompanied by a standards-based study guide designed to make the pre and post-show experience more meaningful. Our matinees are presented at 9:30am and 11:30am and many of the titles have “sensory friendly” showings. These feature lower sound levels, brighter lighting, before-show tactile tours, a quiet room and trained volunteers.
While the Covid 19 crisis has forced us to pause live activities, we remain committed to providing them in the future, and eagerly anticipate the time when that can occur. If you would like to be notified when we resume operation, please send an email to: email@example.com
