North Hills planetarium featuring holiday themed shows for children

| Monday, Dec. 3, 2018, 4:30 p.m.

Tuesday Dec. 4 will be the first of three dates in December for free Christmas-themed shows being presented at the North Hills High School 24-foot domed digital immersion theater.

“George and Oatmeal Save Santa” starts at 6:30 p.m. and is targeted for children from preschool through elementary age. “Solar Quest” will follow at 7:15 p.m. and is appropriate for older children and adults.

In “George and Oatmeal Save Santa,” Santa Claus has not come back from his yearly globe trotting trip, and Oatmeal the Snowman must ask George the Wizard to help find Old St. Nick using magic from the stars to guide Santa around the world.

“Solar Quest” demonstrates how the Sun and Earth are interconnected and discusses the impacts of space weather, Earth’s atmosphere, magnetic field and solar flares.

The shows will be repeated again on Friday Dec. 14 and on Monday, Dec. 17.

The shows require reservations by calling 412-318-1000, ext. 3166, or emailing: grumskik@nhsd.net.

Group reservations for community organizations are accepted, and special events for community members and groups can be scheduled.

The theater is located on the third floor of the high school, 53 Rochester Road in Ross.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
