School Field Trips

At the Fredericton Playhouse, we know that learning can happen outside of the classroom, and we believe there is value in visiting the theatre at a young age. That’s why each year we offer a series of school matinée field trips and Playhouse tours designed to expose students to the magic of live, professional performing arts. Our series offers performances for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 in music and theatre.

Our 2021-22 season includes five dynamic performances in a variety of genres including dance, theatre, puppetry, circus arts, and music. Study guide activities are available for most shows, allowing teachers to connect the students’ experience to the curriculum.

Classes also have the opportunity for a behind-the-scenes look at how a professional performance venue operates with a Fredericton Playhouse tour. Tours include a trip to the fly floor, spotlight booth and dressing rooms, as well as an onstage lighting and sound demonstration.

Please note, some shows have been rescheduled due to COVID-19. For up-to-date information, see the booking form, or contact Wendy Caron.
