Student Matinées

A lifelong love of theater often starts with a school bus ride to see a student matinée performance at Pittsburgh Musical Theater. These matinées are the same professional productions staged for evening and weekend audiences. Student matinée performances begin at 10 a.m., and tickets are $12 each. For every 25 paid student tickets, one complimentary ticket is provided.

Additional Resources

We support student matinees with a range of resources that extend and deepen the theater experience and connect it to the classroom. These include:
