2019-2020 Student Matinees
Each year American Stage offers a number of special performances aimed directly at student audiences through our Student Matinee program.
Experiencing live theatre empowers us all to be bolder, wiser, and more compassionate on stage and in life. Through our student matinee program, many students have the opportunity to see a play for the first time, and to foster a love for powerful storytelling and the performing arts. We select plays in our season that support what local educators are teaching in their classrooms.
Each Student Matinee performance includes:
- An exciting and insightful talk-back with the cast following the show.
- An easy-to-use Prezi presentation that can be applied as a study guide for teachers, or an in-class workshop presented by an American Stage Education faculty member visiting your classroom for no additional fee.
- Each experience connects to Theatre Arts and English Language Florida State Standards noted in the Prezi/study guide.
Student matinee performances take place on select Wednesdays and begin at 10:30am.
