We are now taking field trip requests from school and community groups for the 2017-18 academic year. Just complete this form on our web site. If you are a teacher or group leader, here are few things to keep in mind when thinking about shows for the 2017-18 academic year:
- Our shows are all free!
- Reserve as early as you can; demand gets heavier after the Christmas break, and our “season” ends in early May.
- Our window for doing shows during weekday school hours will once again be Thursdays. Evenings and weekends are somewhat more flexible, depending on other demands on the space.
- The capacity of the theater is 40 in seats or ~80 on the floor.
- Outreach is an important mission of Gettysburg College’s planetarium, but it is not the primary one. Please be aware that you’re entering a working college environment, probably with classes in session in the building, and also that none of the staff works full-time on the planetarium
- It’s AMAZING!
