Student Matinee Series Events

The Stocker Arts Center Student Matinee Series is made up of weekday performances designed with students in mind. We welcome public, private, charter and home schoolers, as well as the general public at these performances. We encourage teachers to make group reservations early – and the general public to buy tickets early – as some of the shows do sell out!
