A Christmas Carol Student Matinee, 2016

Student Matinees

At The Rep, we are pleased to provide student matinee performances of select Mainstage productions.

More than 5,000 young people attend student matinees at The Rep each season. Immediately prior to the performance, students are invited to a free pre-show docent presentation, designed to introduce the content, themes and production elements of the show they are about to see.

In addition, a free interdisciplinary study guide is provided to teachers at least two weeks prior to performance dates. Study guides include information about the play, playwright and production, as well as background articles and discussion questions.

All Student Matinee tickets cost $10.

Performance at 10:30 am, Pre-show presentation at 9:45 am

Grade recommendation: 8th grade and up

Junkyard tycoon Harry Brock swaggers into Washington, D.C. as the ultimate political outsider, determined to buy a senator or two. The monkey wrench in his schemes is Billie Dawn, his seemingly dim-witted ex-showgirl girlfriend. But when Brock hires a reporter to tutor Billie, she rapidly comes into her own as a force to be reckoned with. This sharp and snappy comedy hilariously skewers Beltway corruption.


You will be sent an agreement form upon placement of your reservation. Please review your reservation specifics and sign and return a copy of this form to confirm your reservation. Full payment is due three weeks prior to the performance date.


The Rep cannot accommodate motor coach and bus parking on site. Motor coaches and buses should arrive early to drop off students, at which time drivers will be given directions for parking and pick-up procedures.

When arriving at The Rep please unload students in the circle drive, located on the west side of the Loretto-Hilton Center. Access the circle drive from Garden Ave. Buses should take Big Bend Blvd. and turn on to S. Old Orchard Ave, which turns into Garden Ave. Then make a right into the circle drive immediately before the light at Edgar Rd.


Seating locations are assigned in the order that full payments are received. If you have a student requiring wheelchair or special seating, please call in advance so that we may accommodate you.
