STUDENT MATINEES

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

More than 3,000 young people attend student matinees at The Rep each season. Student matinee are typically designed for high school aged students (with the exception of A Christmas Carol which is open to all ages).

For any Mainstage show in which a student matinee performance is not offered, students may purchase tickets to any public performance with available seating for just $10. Group pricing is also available. Contact The Rep’s Box Office (314-968-4925) for more information.

STUDENT MATINEE FAQs

WHAT TIME SHOULD I PLAN TO ARRIVE?

Please plan to arrive 30 - 40 minutes before the scheduled curtain time of the mainstage performance. 

HOW DO I GET TO THE REP?

Printable Driving Directions to The Rep

Please share with the bus driver and others planning to drive to the performance.

WHERE SHOULD I PARK?

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. Please note that bus and motor coach parking is not within walking distance of The Rep, so if your bus driver is planning to see the show, you will need to make other arrangements.

Groups that are driving themselves or carpooling will need to park in the Garden Park Plaza Parking Garage located on Garden Avenue down the street from the theatre. You will be issued a parking pass two weeks before the performance, which should be placed on your dashboard after parking. 

WHERE DO I GO WHEN I ARRIVE?

The check-in will be located in the lobby next to the circle drive doors off Edgar Road.

HOW WILL I GET MY TICKETS?

We do not issue tickets for student matinee performances. Your group will be assigned specific seats in the theatre based on your reservation. When you arrive, an usher will escort you to your assigned seats.

DO YOU SELL FOOD OR DRINKS?

Food and drinks are not sold during student matinee performances. No food, drinks (including water), or gum will be allowed inside the theatre. Travel cups and water bottles will be stored in the lobby during the performance to limit distractions inside the theatre.

WHAT IF I NEED TO MAKE CHANGES TO MY RESERVATION?

To make any changes to your reservation, please email education@repstl.org. Changes in group size or cancellations must be made 30 days before the performance date.

WHEN AND HOW DO I PAY FOR MY SEATS?

HOW SHOULD I PLAN FOR LUNCH?

Food may be consumed in the outdoor garden, weather permitting. Lunches will be stored in the theatre lobby during the performance.
