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.
