Santa Cruz Shakespeare’s 2018 Student Matinee Week

Shakespeare for everyone!

We are proud to present our new Student Matinee Week premiering during our 2018 Summer Season. After our regular season closes on September 2, 2018, our professional production of Romeo and Juliet will remain open for four student-only matinee performances running through September 4-7. These 10am matinees are for students and their chaperones only, and include a post-show discussion with the actors after each performance.

Our ultimate goal is to ensure that every single high school student in the Santa Cruz County has seen a live, professional production of one of Shakespeare’s plays by the time they graduate!

Tickets are free for Title I schools, and only $10 per student for all others, with additional limited scholarship opportunities. Plus, SCS will provide a free adult chaperone ticket for every 15 students who attend.

To reserve space for your students, please fill out the form below. The deadline to sign up for the Student Matinee Week is May 1, 2018. If there is availability at performances after that time, tickets will be offered on a limited basis later in the summer.
