New Ordway programs offer discounts to Metropolitan State students

The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts is launching a new family series this fall, featuring community-oriented programming and engagement opportunities. These programs come with discounts for Metropolitan State students and their children.

Performances: (10 a.m. lobby activities | 11 a.m. performance) 
• Saturday, Sept. 30 | Concert Hall: David Gonzalez’s bilingual tales from the Latino world

• Saturday, March 3, 2018 | Concert Hall: The Okee Dokee Brothers

• Saturday, April 14, 2018 | Music Theater: Mermaid Theatre’s “Goodnight Moon and the Runaway Bunny”

The Ordway Center is located at 345 Washington St., St Paul.

• “Play and Learn Lobbies” are activities in the lobbies for families that are educational, interactive, and encourage creativity one-hour prior to the performance. Many participating organizations create activities to coincide with their exhibits, upcoming productions, or their mission statement to get the word out about their programming.

• David Gonzalez will offer a bilingual interactive storytelling workshop for families with young children at 4:15 p.m.,  Friday, Sept.29 at at the Riverview Library, 1 George St. E., St. Paul. To RSVP, call 651.282.3115.

David Gonzalez and Okee Dokee Brothers will have a limited number of $5 tickets through the Community Access Program, as part of Ordway’s commitment to address barriers to participation that can restrict access to the performing arts.
