Who can attend student matinees?

Public, Charter, Private, and Home schools, grades K-12 are welcome to attend with chaperones.  Although there is no specific dress code, students are encouraged to dress extra nice on show days.  The theater is not a good place to bring babies and preschoolers.  Make other arrangements for them during show time.

What is the process for reserving seats to student matinees?

Click the “Student Matinee Sign Up” button on this page to reserve your tickets.  An invoice will be sent and seats assigned once paid.  Students in wheel chairs may be seated separately from your group with a companion.  Refunds will not be given for unused seats.  If you need to cancel your reservation – you will be issued a refund only if we are able to fill your seats and with a $25 fee.

Home Schools may follow the instructions for online ticket purchase in the fall.

Is there a cost to attend?

Yes. CacheArts student matinees are $1 per seat.

Student matinees of nationally touring performing artists cost between $14 and $27 per attending student.  Each student’s dollar is matched many times over by funds from generous public and private sponsors.
