Student Matinees

Join us in 2022

At this time, we plan to offer in-person student matinees for A Raisin in the Sun and The Tempest

We have made the difficult decision to not offer student matinees of A Christmas Carol this season. However, we are pleased to offer Dickens’ Holiday Classic, our 2020 virtual telling of A Christmas Carol, to schools at no cost. Look for information about how to request access soon.

Student matinee timeline

  • 10 a.m. (suggested arrival time)

    We recommend that student groups arrive 30 minutes early and review our First Timer's Guide in advance. A member of the Education Team will greet your group when you enter the building and guide you to the theater.

  • 10:15 a.m.

    Students will participate in a 15-minute, interactive experience led by the Education Team before being seated. If your group arrives after 10:15, they will take you directly to your seats so you don’t miss a moment.

  • 10:30 a.m.

    The performance begins — enjoy the show!

  • After the show

    Stay for an optional 20-minute discussion hosted by the Education Team. Reservations required.
