CSC has served over 50,000 students with student matinee performances. Student matinees are weekday, daytime, morning performances where the primary attendees are students and their faculty/chaperones. Each performance features CSC artists meeting students prior to the performance informally, and a talkback immediately following the performance. CSC stages two exclusive student matinee productions in our theater each year, where we invite schools from the mid-Atlantic region (Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia) to attend.
Appropriate Grade Levels:
8 - 12
CSC presents student matinees to support of the common core curriculum. In addition, shows from the regular subscription season may have student matinee performances added to their night-time/weekend performance schedule. In the fall, CSC presents a 90-minute, intermission-less Macbeth, designed to support the high school curriculum. For approximately 8 weeks in the spring, CSC presents a 100-minute, intermission-less Romeo and Juliet, to support the middle-school curriculum.
