10:30am Student Matinee

Welcome, School Groups!

Children's Theatre Company is the nation's largest and most acclaimed theatre for multigenerational audiences. It creates theatre experiences that educate, challenge and inspire more than 300,000 people annually. CTC is the only theatre for young audiences to win the coveted Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre (2003) and was named "the #1 childrens theatre in the nation" by TIME Magazine. CTC is committed to producing world class productions at the highest level and to developing new works, more than 200 to date, dramatically changing the canon of work for multigenerational audiences.

Children’s Theatre Company offers Weekday Student Matinee performances for your classroom, homeschool, or community educational group. Attending a CTC performance ignites students’ creativity, while supporting your curriculum and learning goals. Each classroom receives a lesson plan in advance with activities designed to engage your classroom through acting, writing and research.  

Every CTC student matinee performance concludes with a brief Q & A with the actors and crew to offer your students a glimpse into our process. Balloonacy student matinee performances conclude with a chance to meet the actor and balloon. 

CTC believes that theatre should be accessible to all students. We offer performances designated for ASL/AD and wheelchair seating is available in all performances. For students with sensory sensitivities, we have headphones, social stories and other tools available. Thanks to our generous sponsors, tickets are highly subsidized based on free and reduced lunch rates.
