Student Matinees


Constellation Stage & Screen offers special weekday matinees for specific shows throughout the season as part of our Constellation For Schools program. This program significantly reduces the cost of admission so that school children can attend these performances, making them affordable for students and teachers. To accompany the performances, Constellation Stage & Screen creates education materials for teachers, specifically designed to meet curricular standards for the age group. These study guides are created by Constellation’s Education Committee, which includes local educators and the Monroe County Public Library.

Student Matinee Pricing:
$7.50 per student
$15 per adult/chaperone

Minimum student group size of 10 required for attendance. See below for availability and to request performances.

Health and Safety Protocols will be announced at least one month prior to the event and will likely reflect current local, county, state, and school district guidelines.
