A field trip they won't forget...

The following Olney Theatre Center productions include 10:15 am performances in their schedule to accommodate school groups. These events are restricted to school groups only. Tickets are available on a sliding scale (see sidebar) with prices ranging from $5 for Title I schools to a maximum of $20 per student.  We are committed to making our performances accessible to as many students as possible, so please do not assume your school cannot afford to come to the theatre.

To make a reservation, please fill out the School Engagement Form online. This will help us gather preliminary information and determine whether we have enough seats available for the performance. For more information about each show, click on the titles below. One of our staff members will then contact you to confirm your reservation or ask clarifying questions. For specific questions about the content in each production, view our Content Guidance.
