Santa Fe College

While attending the Florida Theater Conference at Santa Fe College you may want to visit the Kika Silva Pla Planetarium or the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo. Please contact each attraction to make your group reservations.

The Kika Silva Pla Planetarium is showing “Music 360: Rock on Demand” and the Florida Skies shows. The shows are approximately 50 minutes and maximum seating is 60.
Show Description: “Rock on Demand” Vol. 1 is an entertainment music show (not a planetarium show) featuring bands like The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Rush, Pink Floyd and many others, combined with outstanding computer animations which fill the entire dome, surrounding you with an experience which you won’t soon forget! With 75 minutes of full dome music, the Kika Silva Pla Planetarium will present “Rock on Demand” in two volumes… two separate shows. (A Clark Planetarium Production)[45 min each] Ages: 13+

The cost is $10.00 per person. Groups are encouraged to schedule a private presentation, rather than compete for limited seating at a public show. To schedule a show, contact James Albury at james.albury@sfcollege.edu.

The Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo is home to over 75 different species of animals and is maintained by over 200 students enrolled in the college’s premier Zoo Animal Technology Program. The zoo showcases a diverse collection that contains both native and exotic species for everyone to enjoy. The animals are on display in a naturally shaded environment with a ¼ mile trail lined with sawdust trails that are stroller and wheelchair accessible. Picnic facilities are available inside the park.

Student guided tours can be arranged most mornings during the week. If you prefer you can walk through the zoo at any time between 9 AM and 2 PM. To arrange a tour in advance call 352-395-5603.
