Student Matinee Series

We create special student matinee performances for each of our mainstage productions so students in our region can experience live professional theatre.

Thanks to donor support, our 2021-2022 student matinee series is free of charge to students.


The 39 Steps

Recommended Audience: Middle School, High School
Description: A Hitchcock masterpiece meets spy novel in this hilarious whodunit. Richard Hannay, trapped in a boring life, encounters a woman who
claims to be a spy. Soon thereafter, she is murdered and Hannay finds himself entangled in a nationwide manhunt, pursued by a mysterious organization called “The 39 Steps.” This two-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning
comedy is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four), and abounding theatre magic.


The Invisible Hand

Performance: April 7, 2022 at 11:00AM
Recommended Audience: High School
Description: What is the price of freedom? American investment banker Nick Bright is held for ransom by a militant group in Pakistan, and nobody is coming to his aid. In exchange for a shot at freedom, Nick strikes a risky deal with his captors where he will teach them how to manipulate the global market, but is the price of freedom something he’s willing to pay? Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar’s suspenseful and provocative political thriller explores the consequences of fanatical devotion to both the scripture and the dollar.


Another Revolution (World Premiere)

Performance: May 12, 2022 at 11:00AM
Recommended Audience: Middle School, High School
Description: The year is 1968 and times are a’changing. Two graduate students are forced to share a lab at Columbia University and find they are opposed in more ways than just their scientific disciplines. Amid interpersonal differences, a campus devolving into political chaos, and the uncertainty and turmoil of the outside world, they each discover what it’s like to be thrown into someone else’s orbit. You won’t want to miss this timely new work about finding hope in one another through the uncertainty of the around us.

Student matinee tickets must be booked two weeks prior to the performance. For more information, contact Steven Calakos at scalakos@gulfshoreplayhouse.org.
