Description:

North Hills High School digital immersion theater will welcome community members in September 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 Oct. 5, 14 and 18. “Flight Adventures” starts at 6:30 p.m. and is targeted for children from preschool through elementary age. “Cosmic Castaways” will follow at 7:15 p.m. and is appropriate for older children through adults.

“Flight Adventure” introduces viewers to the science, technology and history of flight and details the advancements that made space travel a reality.

“Cosmic Castaways” explores cosmic collisions and the fate of our Sun and solar system when The Milky Way collides with The Andromeda Galaxy in the very distant future.

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 grumskik@nhsd.net. 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. The gift shop that supports the North Hills High School Astronomy Club will be open for all shows.

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.
