Student Discovery Matinees

Bring your students to the Bruns! Cal Shakes holds special student matinees for select shows in the Fall and Spring—complete with activities before and after the show, as well as resources and study guides for you to prepare them for the performance.

We also offer fun and educational classroom visits by Teaching Artists to help contextualize the play and prepare students to engage more deeply, at a reasonable additional charge.
