The North Hills Senior High School planetarium will welcome community members this holiday season.
A double feature of two back-to-back shows will be shown on the 24-foot planetarium dome on Dec. 10, 14, 17 and 19.
“George and Oatmeal Save Santa” starts at 6:30 p.m. and is targeted for children from preschool through elementary age. “Winter Wonders” will follow at 7:15 p.m. and is appropriate for middle school-age children through adults.
In “George and Oatmeal Save Santa,” Santa Claus has not come back from his yearly globetrotting 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.
“Winter Wonders” discusses the many cultures who observed changes in the sky since ancient times and how these cultures celebrated the winter solstice with grand traditions.
All shows are free and open to the public. Reservations are encouraged. Please call 412-318-1000 ext. 3116 to place a reservation.
The North Hills Senior High planetarium is located on the third floor of the senior high school at 53 Rochester Road in Ross Township.
North Hills remains one of only a few districts across the state to offer a planetarium for educational and community outreach purposes in a public high school. Senior high teacher Sue Batson oversees the planetarium.
