Today’s scholars and researchers say creativity is the top skill our kids will need when they enter the work force of the future. We couldn’t agree more, and we salute YOU for valuing the educational and inspirational power of live performance.

We would like to extend an invitation to you and your students to attend some of the wonderful performances scheduled for the coming school year. There is nothing quite like the performing arts to stir the imagination and elicit critical thinking skills in students.

Order Early for the Best Seats. Tickets for shows at both theaters are $9.00 per seat for groups of 10 or more, $14 for individuals. All reservations must be accompanied by an order form and a $100 non-refundable deposit, no exceptions. Full payment must be made 3 weeks prior to the performance. Please make sure your ticket count includes teachers and parent chaperones. Parents purchasing tickets after the initial school order will be charged the individual rate unless they purchase tickets as a group of at least 10. All children regardless of age must have a ticket.

There is a $4 handling fee per order (not per ticket) for tickets purchased online, by phone, or by mail.

Your seat location at the Fred Kavli Theatre is determined by the order in which we receive full payment.  You will be assigned a particular section of the theater based on the date of payment, but your actual seats within that section, will be determined by your arrival time at the venue.
