Student Matinees

Student Matinees

Student Matinees expose thousands of students to the performing arts through discounted daytime performances. TEKS-aligned teacher guides are provided for each matinee performance. 


Part rock concert, part science experiment, the creators of the Austin-based group ArcAttack unveil the science behind the spectacle. Combining their love of music with science, the group invites students to explore concepts such as the scientific inquiry process, electricity, voltage and current, magnetism, robotics and lightning through a show that's both entertaining and interactive.

ArcAttack offers a comprehensive, curriculum-based 60-minute show for students that meets Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and National Science Education Standards. This show is recommended for students in grades 3 - 8. 

Tickets are $10 for both students and chaperones.
