PreK to 12th Grade Students and their Parents/Guardians Eligible for FREE Admission to Theatre in the Park and the Johnson County Museum!
The Johnson County Museum and Theatre in the Park are joining forces with the Kansas State Department of Education and cultural sites around the state to provide a summer of enrichment for PreK to 12th grade students in Kansas – and their parents/legal guardians, too!
Sunflower Summer is a program of the Kansas State Department of Education and is designed to provide a wide variety of ways for families to get out, explore something new, and enjoy time together.
Kansas families can visit more than 70 sites for free, including museums, zoos, historic landmarks, and more for free with the Sunflower Summer Passport. The program runs through August 15th.
“Visiting museums, viewing art, going to theatre, and the like are great fun, but they are also incredible educational experiences. They light sparks in kids’ minds, prompt them to ask why and how questions, and help them make connections,” said museum director Mary McMurray.
“These experiences can certainly help prepare students for a new school year, and really for a lifetime of learning.”
To start your summer of experiential learning, simply go to sunflowersummer.org, select the correct store, then download the app to your phone. Follow the prompts to create an account as a parent/guardian, add your children, explore experiences, claim your tickets, and set off on your Sunflower Summer adventure!
“This is such a great opportunity for families to get out and experience live theatre,” said Theatre in the Park’s Producing Artistic Director Tim Bair. “The best part… it’s free! And it’s easy too. Just sign up, then show up! Easy!”
We hope to see you at the Johnson County Museum and Theatre in the Park soon!
