Student Matinee Performances

MTW holds special weekday performances to introduce children to live musical theatre. These programs are offered at little or no cost to schools. We believe that exposure to live theatre is a crucial element of a well-rounded education.

For each age-appropriate mainstage show, Musical Theatre West will present one or two special 10:00 a.m. performances. These shows are free for all LBUSD schools, and only $5 per student for those in other districts. Students are treated to a professional, Broadway-style musical at the Carpenter Center. In many cases, MTW is also able to underwrite the cost of transportation. Educators are provided with a student study guide for each production.

2023-2024 School Student Matinees are Sold Out
Please check back on Aug 1 2024 for 2024-2025 school year forms.
