Student Matinees

For the 2021-2022 school year, the theatre will be presenting an assortment of both in-person and virtual student matinees. After a decade of successful school partnerships, we are eager to continue our connection with the students and schools of central Massachusetts and beyond.

Study Guides are also available for all or most shows to help both students and educators prepare for what they will be seeing on stage. These guides contain background material on the show and include educational activities to enhance the classroom experience before entering the theatre.

Please check back regularly as we update our season of student matinee offerings.
