Student Matinees

To reserve your tickets, call the Group Sales Coordinator, Kiersten Dittrich (202) 675-0336.

Experience the excitement of live theater with a student matinee!  These full-length, weekday Folger Theatre performances begin at 11:30am and are followed by post-show discussions with members of the cast. Come early and eat lunch in our Great Hall or Elizabeth Garden. 


Student matinee tickets are currently available for reservation by teachers of K-12 students and home school groups.


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


Please inquire with the Group Sales Coordinator for availability and pricing.



Folger Theatre’s 2013/14 season will be
