Create a holiday tradition in your school by bringing your students to the Hippodrome’s annual production of A Christmas Carol. The Hippodrome Theatre is proud to offer school day matinees to area students for only $8. School day matinees are generally scheduled twice a year: in December for A Christmas Carol, and in April and May when the Hippodrome produces a family-friendly comedy, adventure or whodunit.
Our 2014-2015 Student Matinee Series will feature A Christmas Carol in November and December and The Two Musketeers in April and May.
