ELKHART — Premier Arts offers field trip opportunities for home school students and school groups called the Youth Educational Series (Y.E.S.).

The theater has 1,700 seats and generally fills to capacity as Premier Arts offers the opportunity to see the beautiful Lerner Theatre, experience a theatrical production and give students an opportunity to learn theater etiquette.

Many of the students that attend have never been in a theater. They sometimes are uncertain if it is okay to clap, laugh or cry. A study guide is produced for each show, that offers the students some study exercises to include in their classroom work before and after attending.

Premier Arts is offering the following Y.E.S. Performances in 2013:

Ÿ “Sleeping Beauty” April 12 at 9:00 a.m.

Ÿ “Little Women” April 26 at 9:00 a.m. (geared more for middle school and high school students)

Ÿ “Annie Get Your Gun” Oct. 11 at 9:00 a.m.

Ÿ “A Christmas Carol” Dec. 13 at 9:00 a.m.

Any school group that is interested in attending must contact Sue Frost-Mayse.

The wall was washed over during Superstorm Sandy in October 2012, causing erosion and and taking down power lines. Asharoken can accept federal aid to build a dune and create public access to its beach for the first time in nearly 90-year history. Or it can reject aid, retain its private beach and allow erosion and other issues to worsen. (AP Photo/Emily Dooley)
