Commitment to Community
Taking a bow on the Embassy stage, students act out history and learn how a community chose to save the historic theatre from the wrecking ball. Students use analysis and application of information as they investigate the building.
Touring and discovering the amazing variety of artwork embedded in the walls, ceilings and floors of the Embassy Theatre reinforces the artistic value of the building itself. Taking the stage to reenact the history that led to the Embassy being saved helps students understand the responsibilities and choices that are made when citizens consider choices affecting an entire community.

Bud’s Attic (virtual option not available)
Participants will examine unusual artifacts from the Embassy Theatre and Hotel Indiana. After examination, they will draw conclusions on the item’s identity and use based on observation and prior knowledge. Participants will then tour the building and discover “hints” about the artifacts and then have a chance to re-examine and reassess the artifacts using newly gained knowledge. Two (2) hours in length. Aligned for grades 3-5 but also appropriate for grades 6-7.
Shapes, Sights, Sounds and Surfaces (virtual option not available)
This Study Trip experience invites preschoolers to explore the Embassy Theatre with their senses. Instead of telling four and five year olds “don’t touch,” they can explore the beauty of the theater with their hands, eyes, and ears while practicing recognizing shapes and colors. Appropriate for ages 4 to 5.
