EDUCATION MATINEES – 2021 Season

Student Matinees

While Park Square’s physical stages are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, our commitment to providing educators and students with theatre resources that enhance and enliven their education remains strong.

In normal times, Park Square serves student audiences through multiple productions on two stages – our 348-seat Proscenium Stage and 200-seat Andy Boss Thrust Stage. Our award-winning education program serves 7-12th grade students with weekday performances of both literary classics and cutting edge contemporary theatre.

We eagerly anticipate the time we can return to this level of programming. In the meantime, we hope you will explore some of the online content Park Square has to offer!
