Columbia Education tour

Bringing quality live theatre to your students for FREE!

Columbia Theatre presents our brand new Education Tour! Bring our Main Stage productions to your school or performance venue complete with original cast members from the show.

Education Tour events are an hour in length and include:

Our fall tour performances of Tommy Jamerson’s The Jungle Book will be traveling from October 17–November 4, 2022, and our spring tour performances of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet will be traveling from February 13–17 and February 27–March 3.

Performances are available to be scheduled for Tuesdays–Fridays during that time period. Mondays will be reserved as rescheduling days in the event that rescheduling is necessary for any reason.
