Student Matinees

Cast members talk to students post-show Meghan McMaster

Our new season reflects Calgary’s spirit of collaboration. It’s diverse, international, and familiar, all in one. We have wonderful stories to share with your students that will excite and delight, from the spell-binding history of BOOM, the insider’s view of Her Majesty’s private meetings in The Audience, and the world-premiere adaptation of A Thousand Splendid Suns, to the inspiring and hilarious ‘da Kink in my Hair and the joyful celebration of classic musical theatre in Crazy for You. These plays will spark imaginations and start conversations about the world around us.

We hope you will find lots of opportunities to share the creative possibilities of live theatre with your students. I look forward to seeing you in our theatre in the 2016-17 school year.

Welcome.

- Dennis Garnhum, Artistic Director

General Information

START TIME
Shows start promptly at 11:30am. The doors to the lobby will be open at 11:00am and we will start seating students at this time. We advise you to arrive at the theatre no later than 11:00am.

BUSES & PARKING
If you require parking, please inquire through Calgary Parking Authority prior to your attendance.

SEATING
We do not issue individual tickets for each student. Seat numbers are submitted to the Front of House department prior to your attendance and your seating is assigned the day of the performance. Front of house staff members will be present and will direct your group to their seats, to fill the house as effectively as possible.

IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ
Food, beverages, gum, cell phones, cameras and any recording devices are not allowed in the theatre. Please ensure that your students are aware of this.

We request that students do not leave the lobby areas during the intermission. If students leave the theatre and are late returning, they may not be able to get back into the auditorium once the second act begins. House Manager warnings for intermission cannot be heard outside the lobby areas.

Theatre programmes are handed out after the performance at coat check.
