YOU*THeatre for Schools

Coming up: 2014 Spring School Matinee


School Matinees

yc_image_lunaEach spring The Western Stage presents a special student matinee performance in order to introduce local students to Hartnell College and Theatre Arts. Titles such as The Pearl, The Outsiders, The Spirit of Hispania, ¡Bocon!, and Luna, are chosen because of their literary connection or because the protagonist is a youth making difficult decisions.

Approximately 500-700 students and teachers attend student matinees annually.

For more information on matinees, please contact our Youth Outreach Coordinator at (831) 770-6123.
