student matinees

Attending one of George Street Playhouse’s Student Matinees is a wonderful opportunity for students to come to a professional, regional theatre, watch an engaging production, and have a fun field trip while they’re at it!

Attend one of our Touring Theatre performances here at the Playhouse and fulfill the students’ state-mandated requirement to watch live theatre. Each play comes with a comprehensive post-play workshop that fosters critical thinking and allows students to investigate the issues and themes of the play.

Our specially priced student matinees are designed to accommodate any size student group.  Teacher and student study guides are available with a host of support mateirals to enhance student learning. For an additional fee, we offer classroom residencies focused around the themes of each play.

Matinee Performance Prices 
All student matinee tickets are $12

One chaperone ticket will be provided for every 15 students.
