Court Theatre’s Student Matinee series brings classic theatre to Chicago-area high school students through a series of deeply discounted weekday performances of Court’s productions. In any given season, approximately 4,000 students attend with their school. Seeing performances of the classics gives life to texts and prompts students to consider stories in a new light.
Pricing: $12/student | Chaperones are free | All performances are at 10:30am
