Student Matinees



Student Matinee dates for the 2014-2015 season will be available soon.

 

Experience the excitement of live theater with a student matinee!  These full-length, weekday Folger Theatre performances are followed by post-show discussions with members of the cast. Come early and eat lunch in our Great Hall or Elizabeth Garden. 

 

Box Office staff can share the ending time for each play and the production's suitability for younger students as the play rehearses.

 
 

FOLGER THEATRE'S 2014/2015 STUDENT MATINEES:

 

Dates to be announced.

 

JULIUS CAESAR

Beware the Ides of March, Caesar. Shakespeare's ferocious examination of power, ambition, and democratic responsibility crackles just one block from the Capitol.

 

MARY STUART

Imprisoned by her Protestant cousin and Queen of England Elizabeth I, Mary, Queen of Scots anxiously waits for her fate to be decided. Leading ladies Kate Eastwood Norris and Holly Twyford reunite for the ultimate regal showdown in this bold new translation.

 

ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD

The modern theatrical classic and Tony Award® winner for "Best Play" is a veritable feast of astute wordplay and wit. This linguistically brilliant romp through Elsinore - where heads always wins and pirates can happen to anyone - appears for the first time on the Folger stage, featuring Ian Merrill Peakes.

 
William Humphrys after Richard Westall. Brutus and the ghost of Caesar (Julius Caesar IV.iii). Print, 1832



Gebbie and Company. Madam Modjeska as Queen Mary in Mary Stuart, act 5, scene 9. Photogravure, 1888
