School Matinees and Resources

Due to the safety demands of the pandemic, we are not currently planning any student matinees.

We think students benefit immeasurably from the chance to see live performing arts, but we also know that it's important to be sensitive to the financial realities of lower-income students and cash-strapped school systems. Therefore, all students, no matter how big or small your group, get into our student matinees for only $5 a ticket. And all chaperones, no matter how many you bring, get in FREE.

Moreover, all study guides, pre-show workshops, post-show Q&As, and backstage tours are free to student groups.

If you'd like to bring a group, you can contact our PR director for more information about reserving tickets and planning a pre-show workshop.

Due to the themes and language in our productions, we generally recommend our matinees for upper middle school and high school students, and highly suggest that teachers go over the study guide with their students so that they can be prepared for the issues raised by our productions. If you have questions about the suitability of a particular show for your student group, please contact us.
