Student Matinees Details:
Student matinee tickets are sold on a general admission basis. Once all schools have been scheduled for a specific performance, special consideration of class size, student age, physical and spatial needs and arrival time will be utilized to determine your group's seating location in the theatre.
As schools arrive on the day of the performance, guest assistance members will greet your class at your bus drop-off location and escort students to their seats.
Starlight Children's Theatre cannot store lunches.
