Over the past two weeks, Merrimack Repertory Theatre has held three student matinees of A Moon for the Misbegotten. In total, almost 700 students from Lowell, Dracut, North Reading, Nashua, Somerville and Pembroke Academy were able to experience the joys of live, professional theatre. Thanks to MRT’s post-show talkbacks, students from Nashua were able to spend 20 minutes asking questions of the actors, and learned about the rehearsal process, set design, and how the actors make discoveries throughout the performance run.

Interested in having your school visit MRT for a performance next season? We are now taking reservations for student matinee performances for the 2009-2010 season. Please check the schedule below for productions and dates. Student tickets are only $8.50, and schools receive one free chaperone ticket per 10 students. All student matinees start at 10:30AM, and post-show talkbacks with the actors are available. Teachers will also be given our education student guides in advance to help introduce the play to students.

Please email or call 978-654-4678 to reserve tickets for your school, or for information on grant funding if your school needs assistance in paying for tickets.
