Inspire Creativity in Your Classroom with a Field Trip to CTC!

Featuring an unrivaled range of vibrant shows from re-imagined classics to stories from your own backyard, the 2019 – 2020 Season goes beyond words! Reserve your 19-20 field trip before summer to avoid the waiting list.

Seven fantastic shows will take you around the globe without leaving your seat in our 2019 – 2020 Season! With crazily re-imagined classics like Snow White, inspiring spectacles like Circus Abyssinia: Ethiopian Dreams, and the iconic Bob Marley, you won’t want to miss a moment.

Children’s Theatre Company offers Weekday Student Matinee performances for your classroom or homeschool. Attending a CTC performance ignites students’ creativity, while supporting your curriculum and learning goals. We know that it’s a big responsibility to plan a field trip, so we try to keep it as simple as possible. CTC offers school groups the flexibility to reserve now and pay later! Thanks to our grants and generous donors, student matinee tickets are available at a significantly lower price than our public performances with tickets starting at $10. Schools with 20% or higher free and reduced lunch rate are eligible for further subsidized tickets. Full information about CTC’s field trip program is available online HERE.
