Student Matinees

City Theatre student matinees offer educators and students the opportunity to experience new and adventurous plays in a professional theatre environment. Each performance is accompanied by a post-show talkback session with the cast and crew. Teachers attending the matinees also receive show-specific resource guides prior to their visit. Each guide features informative interviews, articles, and classroom activities that fulfill Pennsylvania Academic Standards.

When Omari is suspended from a prestigious – and mostly white – private school for an explosive incident with a teacher, his mother sees her dreams for him vanish before her eyes. Dominique Morisseau (Sunset Baby) returns to City Theatre with this powerful and poetic chronicle of injustice that exposes the cracks in our education system and the power of a mother’s love.

With pulsing rhythms and original rhymes set to a live, looped soundtrack, Brian Quijada stages a hip-hop autobiography about falling in love with performance, the power of family, and growing up Latinx in a world that categorizes everyone in black and white. “An explosion of energy, raw emotion, and irresistible storytelling.” –The Chicago Sun Times.
