You can always adjust the number of attendees prior to the performance.  So please register early! One payment for the group (either by check or credit card) is due by the date of the performance. 

SCHOOL GROUPS  If you are a teacher please consider bringing your students to see a play. A live performance can be a powerful way to augment the learning experiences you provide in the classroom. Matinees are conveniently scheduled at 9:30 a.m. and are usually about two hours, allowing students to return to school in time for lunch or students can eat lunch at one of many locations on campus. After each performance we also bring out the cast and designers so your students can ask questions about how the play was presented and learn what goes into to putting on a live performance. Matinee performances are suitable for high school age students. If there are any questions or concerns about content please contact Angela Riddel for clarification.

COMMUNITY GROUPS Looking for a great activity for your group that takes place during the day? Consider bringing your group to a weekday daytime matinee. These matinees are conveniently scheduled at 9:30 a.m., and most plays take about two hours. This allows your group time to get back before lunch or you can get lunch at any one of the eateries on or around the main campus area. After each performance we also bring out the cast and designers so your group can ask questions about how the play was presented and see what goes into to putting on a live performance. If there are any questions or concerns about content please contact Angela Riddel for clarification.

PARKING Parking is free. Arrangements can be made at the time of reservation and adjusted if needed prior to the performance.
