Student Matinees

Save the dates

The Guthrie is reopening on July 8 and resuming in-person performances this October — student matinees included. Fun fact: We’re currently working on an all-new production of A Christmas Carol, which we can’t want to share with you and your students.

Student matinees are available for A Christmas Carol, A Raisin in the Sun and The Tempest, and tickets go on sale August 31 via our online request form. Beginning September 7, we will also accept orders via phone and email.

We’ll see you at the theater!
