Student Matinees


Rubicon offers special 10 am student matinees throughout the school year. These performances are for productions with suitable content and educational appeal. Many of these productions coincide with the California Arts Education Standards, local school curriculum and/or state recommended reading lists. The theatre experience is enhanced with access to a study guide. Within the pages of this in-depth publication teachers and students discover the world of the play at their own pace as they explore fun facts, trivia and critical analysis. There are games, puzzles and discussion topics to give teachers a variety of ways to engage their students. Following the performance, the audience is invited to share their thoughts with the cast by participating in a question and answer session called a “Talkback.”



Ticket Cost

$10 per student. Teachers and parents may attend for free (one free ticket per 10 students). Includes light intermission snack and bottle of water. Rubicon Theatre is an intimate venue with only 186 seats—we encourage early reservations.
