Area schools invited to matinee performances
The Performance Center of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is pleased to announce the 2013-2014 school-only matinees. This year’s matinee performances provide inexpensive opportunities for area students in kindergarten through grade 12 to experience the best in performing arts.
Interested schools should contact Adam Wiltgen, SMU Box Office manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve seating for their school groups. Include “SCHOOL MATINEE” in the subject line and include the following information:
- Name of School
- Contact name, phone number, and email address
- Number of students expected to attend
- Grade level or age range of students (whichever is applicable)
- Number of expected chaperones
- Any needed accessibility services
All seats cost $3 per person (for students and chaperones) and payment is due upon arrival. Schools are asked to limit chaperones to one adult per 10 students, when possible. You will be contacted to confirm your school’s participation.
Groups should plan to arrive between 20 and 30 minutes prior to the performance. Those who arrive earliest are seated first. Most events last 50 to 60 minutes and offer study guides with pre- and post-performance activities and discussion topics.
