Citadel Theatre 2019/20 School Matinee Booking Form
The Citadel Theatre is proud to share our productions and our passion for theatre with school audiences from Edmonton and the surrounding communities. We offer special matinee performances for school groups for many of the productions in our season, and consider these to be an essential part of our programming. We believe that all individuals should have the opportunity to experience, appreciate, and participate in live theatre. Sharing live theatre with new audiences, be they youths or adults, requires education and cooperation as it is a communal and participatory art form. The Citadel Theatre works to ensure that all patrons have a positive experience when visiting the theatre.

For school matinees, we rely heavily on the support of participating schools and teachers to ensure that students come to the theatre prepared to enjoy the production and be good audience members. The following information is provided to help you plan for your school’s visit to the Citadel Theatre.

Please be aware that the age recommendations provided are subjective. We will do our best to provide age recommendations and any applicable warnings in advance; however, things are subject to change at the Director’s discretion during the rehearsal process.

Some productions in the Citadel’s 2019/20 Season may have limited or no school matinees at this time. If schools express enough interest, additional matinee performances may be added to the schedule. Alternatively, group tickets to an evening performance can also be arranged. Please read through this information in detail, and do not hesitate to contact the School Booking Coordinator if you have any questions regarding a production or the booking process.
