Fringe is Home to the young and young at heart

Fringe Theatre Adventures is proud to share our passion for live theatre with school audiences. We believe young people are integral to the artistic fabric of our community, and are the future generation of theatre goers. We program school matinees so all young people may have an opportunity to experience the joy of live theatre.

We work to ensure all patrons have a positive experience when seeing our productions. For school matinees, we rely on the support of participating teachers to ensure students come to the theatre ready to enjoy the show and be respectful audience members.

Below is a list of the school matinee performances available to students throughout our 2016/17 Season. Questions? Please email schools@fringetheatre.ca.
