School Matinee Series

SMS_webheader

 

Instill a love and appreciation of live theatre in children – and perhaps introduce them to theatre for the first time! The School Matinee Series gives school groups the opportunity to attend weekday performances that support the public school curriculum.

The experience is fun for students and easy for teachers. From the moment you arrive on campus, we are with you every step of the way. Study guides are often available to directly connect the theatre experience with your classroom goals.
