Student Matinees 

Bring the Classroom to the Theatre!

Experience Swine Palace's professional productions as a learning opportunity with your students. This year, Swine Palace is excited to present a series of shows that are not only theatrical, but will also find a home in any English Literature classroom: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time based on the novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens, The Diary of Anne Frank by Frances Goodrich, newly adapted by Wendy Kesselman, and Our Town by Thornton Wilder.

Student Matinees Include:

  • Substantially reduced ticket price of $10 for your students

  • Arranged seating for your school group

  • Talk-Back with the performers, directors, and designers, giving your students an intimate opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the cast, crew, and behind-the-scenes aspects of the production

  • Study-guides filled with play enhancements and topics for discussion

  • A free chaperone ticket for every 15 paid student tickets (additional chaperone tickets are just $12 each)

Dates of performance for THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME:  Tuesday, September 25th at 10:00am in the Shaver Theatre. For more information about the show, check out the show's website here. And don’t forget to download a copy of our study guide!
