Grades 5-12

Students can attend matinees of our mainstage productions! This year we are offering virtual and in person student matinees.

Study Guides

All matinees include a study guide to help teachers better prepare their students for the show.

Mr. Dickens’ Hat Study Guide

Fireflies Study Guide

Intimate Apparel Study Guide

Artist Engagement Workshops (optional)

  • For an additional $150 per classroom a Northlight Teaching Artist can conduct a pre- and post- show workshop at your school around the themes and theatricality of our current production.
  • For an additional $5 per student, students can partake in a pre-show workshop, preceding the student matinee at 9:00am, which connects students directly to the artists involved in the production to learn first-hand how the show is created.

Grade Recommendations

  • Mr. Dickens’ Hat – 5th grade and up (10-11 years old)
  • Fireflies – 9th grade and up (14-15 years old)
  • Intimate Apparel –  9th grade and up (14-15 years old)
