"On-School-Time"

"On-School-Time" performances are available for school groups each spring, during the Theatre's off-season. This is an excellent opportunity for schools that may not have their own performance space to see the Theatre's dynamic one-hour adaptations of Shakespeare's classics in a beautiful and intimate professional venue.

As with the touring performances, each group receives a comprehensive Study Guide, and is invited to stay for the post-performance discussion with the actors.

Student tickets for all performances are $10 each.
One free adult chaperone ticket is provided per 10 paid students.
