Student Matinees at Aurora Theatre Company

Aurora Theatre Company presents special student matinee performances of select mainstage shows during the season. These full performances of the play in our beautiful 150-seat theater in downtown Berkeley are followed by a question-and-answer session with the cast. Schools can arrange for artists from the cast to hold in-school workshops with students before and/or after the performance to further discuss the play.

In recent years, student matinees have been held for productions of Safe House by Keith Josef Adkins (November 2016), and The Royale by Marco Ramirez (November 2017).
