North Hills planetarium featuring holiday themed shows for children
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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
