Student Matinees

STUDENT MATINEES AT LE PETIT

Student matinees provide a unique, up close and personal experience of the productions at Le Petit for hundreds of students each season. Each student matinee performance may be followed by a talk-back during which the cast interacts with students during a brief Q&A session. Please contact our Patron Services Manager, Fernando Rivera at frivera@lepetittheatre.com for more information and to sign-up your class or student organization for our 2024-2025 Season matinees! 

The Student Matinee Program is supported by grants from The Helis Foundation and the Rosemary B. and Bruswick G. Deutsch Foundation for Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carré.


INTERESTED IN SUPPORTING STUDENT MATINEES?

Through sponsorship of student matinees, Le Petit will offer free tickets to students without access to live performance. Sponsorship packages will allow corporations and individuals to give the gift of live theatre to the next generation of theatre lovers. The performing arts are a valuable part of a student’s education. Access to live theatre and storytelling helps students to develop critical thinking skills and engenders empathy and understanding of the larger world.

Sponsoring a student matinee provides free tickets for up to 200 students to have their own matinee, including transportation stipends for bussing and an exclusive study guide created to help students engage with the work they are seeing on stage. Sponsorship also provides funding for teaching artists to visit schools before the performance to prepare them for the visit, and a talkback after the show to allow students to connect with theatre makers. Levels and benefits for student matinee sponsorship are:
