STUDENT MATINEE

Beginning in the fall of 2015, The Pasadena Playhouse reinvigorated its celebrated student matinee program. 15 member schools attend 4 productions - or on-campus events - over the course of a school year. Additionally, each school is “given” a teaching artist who remains with them for the duration of their membership.

Please check back for show dates!

The schools are able to use the tickets as they see fit – for one class to attend all 4 shows, for classes to attend one show each, etc. Each relationship is customized to best serve the needs of the school with whom we are partnering. In the case where a show may be inappropriate for a particular partner, we create an alternative experience in collaboration with the school so the artistic needs of the students may still be met.

Membership in the program includes the following:

50(ish) tickets to all 4 productions listed above
A “Resident” Teaching Artist for your school
Up to 10 pre- and/or post-show workshops
Special multi-school mixer events throughout the season
Opportunities for post-show discussions with cast and affiliated artists
Supporting material with Common Core and Arts Standards tie-ins

The program is inclusive, relationship-based and partially subsidized by our generous funders. We are committed to making it available to all groups who qualify on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications for the program will be available toward the end of the Spring semester.
