PASS - The Performing Arts Series for Students

Designed to open doors to learning through the performing arts.

The Performing Arts Series for Students (PASS), recently completing its 47th year, is designed to open doors to learning through the performing arts.  All shows are held at Millikin University’s Kirkland Fine Arts Center.  Teachers receive an educational packet for each show.
