North Hills High School digital immersion theater will
welcome community members in December for shows aimed at specific age groups. A
double feature of two back-to-back shows will be shown on the 24-foot dome on Dec.
4, 14 and 17. “George and Oatmeal Save Santa” starts at 6:30 p.m. and is
targeted for children from preschool through elementary age. “Cosmic Colors: An
Adventure Along the Spectrum” will follow at 7:15 p.m. and is appropriate for
older children through adults.
In “George and Oatmeal Save Santa,” Santa Claus has not come back from his yearly globetrotting trip, and Oatmeal the Snowman must ask George the Wizard to help find Old St. Nick using magic from the stars to guide Santa around the world. This North Hills tradition has been animated by students in Casper, Wyo., and returns for another year.
“Cosmic Colors: An Adventure Along the Spectrum” takes viewers on a journey through the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
All shows are free and open to the public, but all digital immersion theater shows require reservations. Reservations can be made by calling 412-318-1000 ext. 3166 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If no reservations have been made by the end of the last school day prior to the show, the presentation will be canceled. Group reservations for community organizations are accepted, and special events for community members and groups can be scheduled.
The North Hills High School digital immersion theater is
located on the third floor of the high school at 53 Rochester Road in Ross
North Hills remains one of only a few districts across the
state to offer a digital immersion theater for educational and community
outreach purposes in a public high school. It is overseen by high school
teacher Karen Grumski.
