ALL SALES ARE FINAL: we are not able to give refunds.

However, please be advised that students more than three grade levels from those recommended may experience some dissatisfaction.


Spencer Theater for the Performing Arts offers special “Class Acts” performances strictly for the benefit of school children throughout the region. The programming is designed to enhance arts appreciation and education curriculums, and to introduce students of all ages to professional, live performing arts. Students and chaperones may attend school performances for only $5 per ticket and bus transportation for Lincoln County and Mescalero students is subsidized through a grant from the R.D. & Joan Dale Hubbard Foundation. Class Acts programming fulfills the Spencer’s core belief that the performing arts are a vital ingredient for a healthy community, an indispensable tool for a civilized society and positive form of education. Through the magical wonder of dance, song and dramatic dialogue, the performing arts enhance all realms of curriculum in a most aesthetic manner, heightening learning as well as appreciation for living. Look for “curriculum guidelines” online for these shows for ideas about incorporating performance content into your classroom studies. Teachers and students may also be mailed study guides for the events they choose to attend. All of us at the Spencer Theater look forward to seeing you at these entertaining and educationally rich performances. For additional information regarding Class Acts programming, please call the Spencer Box Office at 575.336.4800.

HUBBARD FOUNDATION GRANT GETS STUDENTS TO THE THEATER ON TIME. To receive a reimbursement, forward your busing invoice to: Spencer Theater, Attention: Business Office,108 Spencer Road, Alto, NM 88312. A grant from the R.D. & Joan Dale Hubbard Foundation keeps the buses rolling from Lincoln County and Mescalero schools to the Spencer Theater, delivering thousands of children to the educational magic unfolding on the world-class stage. This locally operated philanthropic foundation plays an invaluable role in the programming of all Class Acts performances, because without safe, organized and timely transportation of school children, shows would be delayed or difficult to schedule during school hours. The Hubbard Foundation grant also covers the publication costs of the “Class Acts” newsletter, which is distributed to elementary and secondary schools in Ruidoso and Lincoln County, Mescalero, Alamogordo and Tularosa, Roswell, Artesia, Hobbs, Clovis, Silver City, Deming and other communities throughout south-central New Mexico. School children from these communities have attended Class Acts programs since 1997, and our hope is that they will return again and again, understanding the performing arts are a vibrant and vital resource for intelligent, creative expression. Bus Arrangements provided through the Hubbard grant are reserved for schools in the districts of Ruidoso, Capitan, Carrizozo, Corona, Mescalero and Hondo.
