Student matinee series

The Flynn Student Matinee Series connects students, teachers, and schools with the performing arts. We bring performances to Vermont that invigorate curricula and introduce students to new worlds and experiences. Student matinee performances illustrate the dynamic relationship between the performing arts and the subjects explored in the classroom—history, science, literature, world cultures, and more. Tickets for the 2022-23 Student Matinee Series go on sale on August 15

Thanks to our generous donors, tickets to all student shows are available at a discounted rate of $10. A limited number of free tickets and transportation subsidies are available for schools where 50 percent or more students are eligible for free and reduced meals.
