Free Student Matinees

The Old Globe provides thousands of free tickets to area students to see special matinee performances of many of our productions. The Old Globe Student matinee program supports schools’ efforts to introduce young people to live theatre as a means of gaining appreciation for the art form and as a springboard for developing creative expression skills. We are committed to supporting area schools through strong, standards-based initiatives that enhance arts literacy for students of all ages. An integral part of the free matinee program is the free in-classroom, pre-performance workshop designed to enhance the theatre-going experience. Teaching Artists use an interactive approach to engage students in understanding the play and concepts of the theatrical production. Student matinees are for high school audiences.
