Two ways to see our Theatre For Young Audience Series!
Our LUNCHBOX PROGRAM invites schools to bring their students to see our Theatre for Young Audience Series in the Historic Arcade Theatre! In addition to the performance, students will participate in a Q&A with our actors, and learn from an interactive workshop which connects to curriculum, and students are encouraged to bring a packed lunch to enjoy during the workshop! Tickets are just $10 per student/chaperone. For parties numbering over 30 we offer one complimentary chaperone ticket for every additional 10 students.
Let us come to your school! The TYA series also TOURS directly to schools! We pack up our set, costumes, and actors, and bring our show to you! Pricing for a performance to come directly to your school is as follows:
$325 for 300 students and under
$425 for 301 to 400 students
$525 for 401 to 500 students
$625 for 501+
Before the Lunchbox Show or Tour, we will send you a Study Guide that provides background, history, and pre and post show activities that can connect with curriculum.
