Student Matinees

Student Matinee Performances

Each year the Hawaii Theatre Center’s Education Program reaches thousands of children on Oahu with our series of affordably priced productions that are suitable in length and content for young audiences. Each offers unique and captivating educational experiences that are guided by current science, history, social studies, literature and cross-curricular standards. By tailoring our series to target specific age range demographics, we aim to reach students as young as pre-kindergartners up through seniors in high school.


Student Matinee performances are offered for these productions with the goal to make a positive impact on students’ academic success by promoting literacy and cognitive and creative development through the excitement of live theatre – and also to appeal to the adults accompanying our young audiences!


Every production is supplemented by a comprehensive study guide to help teachers prepare students so they will receive maximum benefit from the performances and link the Theatre experiences to Hawaii Preschool and DOE Content Standards.


  • Tickets $5 – All Student Matinees
  • With every 20 students, one teacher gets in free!
  • Student Matinee information and reservation Line: (808) 791-1310
