As part of its new Young Audience Series, the Peabody Auditorium Foundation will present "June B.'s Essential Survival Guide to School" at the Seabreeze High School auditorium at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4.

According to a press release, the 60-minute TheatreWorksUSA show is recommended for children in kindergarten through fourth grade and tells the story of how school is "sometimes scary, sometimes super-fun, and always something to sing about." Tickets cost $25.

PAF Executive Director Kathy Berman said she is "excited to be part of bringing shows of this caliber to children and families in our local community.”

PAF President Rene Bell Adams first saw a TheaterWorksUSA show on a field trip with her son. Berman and the PAF board have been in contact with the group since.

"To be able to work with a nationally-acclaimed entity like TheatreWorksUSA in Volusia County is a dream come true," Adams said.

In 2017, PAF launched its Youth + Art = Success! program, which provides elementary, middle and high school students the opportunity to attend cultural programs and performances; and in partnership with Volusia County Schools, provides scholarships for high school seniors studying the performing arts.
