The Winter Arts Showcase is a “no frills” and free opportunity for students in the Metro Arts Tacoma’s performing arts programs to demonstrate what they have been learning and working toward during the fall sessions. It’s also a great time to allow children the chance to perform and see how well they like it, in particular as preparation for the large-scale production Metro Arts puts on each spring. Admission is free. Again, the performance is considered “no frills”, which means students are not required to purchase costumes or props.
