Teachers! Bring your students to Asolo Rep to experience the thrill of live theatre first-hand.
Every year we select productions with discussion topics and themes that make both curricular and personal connections for student audiences. When you make plans to attend an Asolo Rep production, our Education Department will provide the tools you need to explore these powerful stories interpreted by exceptional artists.
What does a student matinee include?
In addition to the perfomance, Main Stages Student Matinees can include interactive classroom workshops, talkbacks with cast members following each performance, and Production Guides developed around the Asolo Rep performance and unique curriculum connections for each piece. Some performances may also offer Educator Workshops and/or Educator Preview options.
Can I request tickets before the 2019-20 school year starts?
We want everyone to have the chance to speak up for the performances that interest you! This year, we will accept performance requests as of 7pm, May 7, 2019. You will tell us:

- Your first and second choice of performances
- Your date preferences
- Your best estimate of a head-count for students and chaperones attending
- Nothing must be signed, and no payments will be due.
We will contact you in the fall to confirm a reservation:
- You will update your numbers at that time.
- You will receive a deadline to submit a signed reservation agreement.
- You will receive a deadline for deposit and balance due, or instructions for scholarship/subsidy options if applicable.
If you are not able to confirm a reservation at that time, we will continue to offer seats to other waiting schools.
What does a student matinee cost?
$10 per ticket, with 1 free chaperone ticket for every 25 tickets purchased.
