There's so much to discover on and beyond the stages at the Grand. We offer 11 AM Student Matinee performances throughout the season. Student groups enjoy deeply discounted group rates for students and teachers through this subsidized initiative.

PLUS we offer online, downloadable Educator Guides that include background information, curriculum connections, and discussion topics to assist teachers and prepare students before and after the show.

Extend your visit by arranging a post-show Artist Talkback session or by booking a complimentary backstage tour of the historic Grand Theatre (subject to availability)
