Student Matinees


As in schools across the country, theaters, too, are responding to a world changed by the presence of COVID-19. This new landscape has, of course, affected student programming, but Chicago Shakespeare is more eager than ever to welcome students and teachers back to the Theater.

This season, there are a limited series of student matinees for high school students across the region: two full-length performances of Measure for Measure in the fall and two full-length performances of The Comedy of Errors in the spring. Due to their run times and content, these student matinees will be prioritized for high school students. If you are a high school teacher and would like to reserve tickets for one of our four student matinee performances this year, please contact the CST Education Department at or call 312.595.5678. Please take a moment to review the Theater’s current COVID-19 Policy and continue to monitor this page as protocols are subject to change.

There will be no abridged Shakespeare productions this year, but Chicago Shakespeare looks forward to the return of this cornerstone education program in the years to come. There are many ways for teachers to get involved, including teacher workshops, the on-site Teacher Resource Center, and Team Shakespeare Digital. Thank you for your continued commitment to working together and bringing live performance into your classrooms. The Theater is grateful for these partnerships.
