Student Matinees Are Back!

Thursday, November 18 marked another great day in the return of live theatre at ATC! Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley welcomed over 500 students from around Tucson for our first Student Matinee in almost 2 years. It was a rousing success, everyone was engaged, laughing, clapping, and “oohing and aahing” throughout the show. It was everything we love about live theatre and more. Experiencing a play through the eyes of a young and engaged audience is one of the pinnacles of the theatre going experience.   

Director of Education, Chris Moseley, led a post show discussion with about 100 students in attendance. The cast and ATC’s Charge Scenic Artist, Charlotte Alcorn, answered questions from the students. The students were fascinated by the backdrop Charlotte and her team brought to life, while the actors shared stories about their characters and experiences.
