Field Trips

Weekday matinees are available for each performance for school groups.  Along with a classroom workshops, residencies, and arts-integrated lessons, a field trip to a First Stage performance allows teachers and students to find new connections to their school curriculum.

Each of our performances can be aligned to your curriculum and address key Common Core State Standards through our pre-show and post-show workshops and arts-integrated lessons.

Reservations for school performances fill quickly.  Call (414) 267-2962 or email fieldtrips@firststage.org to make your reservation.
