Student Matinee Series


Main Stage

Due to unforeseen logistical problems with the touring production of Patch Theatre's ZOOOM, this show has been canceled. If your tickets were purchased within the past 45 days, your order will be refunded to the card used for purchase. Otherwise, our box office will reach out to you to process your refund according to your preference.


Inspired by iconic children’s book Harold and The Purple Crayon, ZOOOM channels the same philosophy: a child who makes sense of their world through art. We follow the main character as she begins a transformational journey with light and discovers that the dark is a magical place. Adventures happen and the audience gets involved to help a lost star find its way home. Using original music, lasers, and projections, ZOOOM is a beautiful and immersive show that explores what dreams are made of. Combining old school whimsy with state-of-the-art technology, ZOOOM is an enchanting story of a child alone in her bedroom, unable to sleep, and curious to understand.

Based in South Australia, Patch Theatre has been making professional theater for 4-10 year old children and their families since 1972. Patch Theatre is an award-winning company that explores the way that children see the world, acknowledging the relevance of their thinking with stories that promote imagination, wonder, and discovery. With a broad range of inspirations, from storybooks to science and beyond, dynamic and innovative light displays are an integral part of their work. They have produced 114 unique, design-rich, inspirational works and performed for millions of children around the world.

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.

ZOOOM is utterly delightful.
