BTE opens its door on select mornings for school-aged groups to enjoy our special school matinees. These educational field trips are beneficial for supplementing arts education for public, private, and home schooled students.

Matinees for the 45 Season will be announced in July. Some shows are not appropriate for younger ages, and are marked as such.

Students, seated in BTE's seats, engage in a talkback with the actors after a show.
