Student Matinees

The day before a production’s premiere, our doors are open for students to see the final dress rehearsal in the beautiful Ellie Caulkins Opera House.  For the discounted price of $10/student, student groups are invited to experience ballet first hand, complete with full costumes, make-up, sets, lighting and sound. Then the curtain opens and the magic begins.

To reserve your school's spot for either production, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page.  Payment is due two weeks prior to the performance date.  If you have any questions, please e-mail Samantha Hyde at

"Thank you, thank you, thank you, for a wonderful performance and experience yesterday! The kids are having meaty conversations about it today.  You would be proud of the wonderful learning. Some of the things that they learned and reflected on are surprising me by their depth. For many of our kids this was a once in a lifetime experience. (I say that now, but lots of kids and teachers and parents already are asking how we can fundraise to come back in the future.)"
- A teacher from the ALICE (in wonderland) student matinee
