Student matinee timeline

  • 9:45 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.

    All ticket holders will enter a performance check-in line and be asked to show proof of vaccination and their photo ID before entering 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!
