McCarter offers student matinees for most of our mainstage theatre series. Productions are generally appropriate for grades 9th-12th, but we occasionally extend the opportunity to our middle school audience based on the show's content. A complimentary digital resource guide with companion activities is included for each school with the price of admission. Click here to register.
