Walton Family Foundation - Bass Hall Shows

The Children’s Education Program Schedule is now available. You can go online [www.basshall.com/childrens-education-program/student-matinees/] and book your students for programming. We are in the third year of a 3 year cycle and we have been gratified by the kind words written about our program to the Walton Family Foundation by many of the “Walton Schools” in Palo Pinto and Parker County.
