Student Matinees
Booking Information: Student Matinees start at 10:30 a.m., allowing plenty of time for the students to be bused to MRT's Liberty Hall in historic downtown Lowell and back to school again by the end of the day. Student Matinee tickets are $8.50 each.  As an added bonus, teachers who book their classes to come to a performance are provided with copies of the script and with our first rate Study Guides so that the play may be easily integrated into the classroom curriculum.  In addition, following each performance there is a talkback with the cast allowing the students a chance to participate in a question and answer session and get inside information regarding the play they have just seen. Attending MRT meets many MCAS and NHCF requirements. 

For a detailed description each production or to request booking information, please contact Mark Soucy, Sales Associate at 978-654-7561 or Mark.Soucy@MRT.org

Partners in Education
Each year, Merrimack Repertory Theatre receives a generous grant from the Ronald M. Ansin Foundation and other sponsors to provide student tickets to schools facing economic hardships.  Through the PIE program, students attend a matinee at no cost to them or their school.  The program may even cover the cost of transportation. 

For more information about the Partners in Education program or for a grant application for your school, please contact Mark Soucy at 978-654-7561 or Mark.Soucy@MRT.org.
