Field Trip Stories
ArtsBusXpress donors and board members came to see for themselves the value of funding field trips to the arts. They joined 1000 students to see "Diana" at the La Jolla Playhouse. “It was amazing,” said everyone including Caryl Lees Witte, Loreen Collins, Mimi Lee, Kevin Zirbel, Patty Smith, Steve Balaban, Lisa Wilson, and David Smith.
Ms. Strong’s VAPA classes from El Camino High School attended the Matinee premiere of Diana.
After the play, many of the actors returned to talk to the students and answer their questions about preparation, rehearsals, production, and performance.
“For most of the students, it was their first time at the San Diego Air and Space Museum. Being able to “travel” through space in the planetarium and land on Mars gave them a new perspective. The students thoroughly enjoyed seeing the space exhibit and trying to fly in the cockpit of the Mercury aircraft and the land rovers! This field trip helped them dream big and get ideas about our new project we are starting for physics and engineering!” Kara Q., Teacher.
