The Old Globe is committed to making theatre that matters, including making it matter to more youth. Each year, thousands of students gain access to live theatre of the highest quality, as well as a greater appreciation for the art form through our Free Student Matinees (FSM) program.
For over 20 years, we have offered transportation and tickets at no cost as well as a free in-classroom pre-show workshop designed to enhance the theatre-going experience lead by our trained, professional Teaching Artists. They use an interactive approach to engage students in understanding the play and concepts of the theatrical production that meet Common Core Content Standards.
Applications are now closed for fall matinees. Please come back October 31 for the release of the winter and spring matinees application.
If you are unable to apply, we have group rates available for our regular evening and weekend performances. Additionally, Title I schools are eligible for subsidized rates for select weekday morning Grinch matinees. For information, please contact our Group Sales Manager by email.
For more application information, please email freestudentmatinees@TheOldGlobe.org.
