School Matinee Series at the Hop

School Matinee Series

The Hop believes that education is not complete without the arts. That's why school-aged students can experience live performances for just $6 per ticket.

Bringing your students to a live performance challenges them to watch and reflect critically—and to connect personal experience to universal themes, via the arts. Exposure to Hop performances ignites a child's imagination in a unique way and can open the door to a greater understanding of the world and a lifelong love of the arts.

The Hopkins Center School Matinee Series supports this by offering schools and registered homeschool families access to affordable ($6 per student) tickets to world-class performing artists. This program connects children and teachers with the performing arts in profound and meaningful ways, enhancing school curriculum and introducing students to worlds they have never known before.

Funded in part by the Brown Foundation Arts Education Fund, the Dr. John H. Carter 1946 Fund and the Charles M. Liddle III 1952 Fund
