Student Matinees

The Pollard Theatre Company offers five daytime matinees of its seasonal classic, A Territorial Christmas Carol specifically for school groups. Schools in the Central Oklahoma region have made our matinee showings a regular outing for their classes; and for hundreds of students each year, this is their first exposure to the magic of live theatre. Teachers take the opportunity to integrate both the story and the overall theatrical experience into their History, Literature, Arts and Humanities curriculum - and many groups extend their stay in Guthrie to include a visit to our Territorial Museum. These dates will sell out, so contact the Box Office to begin your reservation process today!

Sponsor a Group!

Would your business or civic organization like to sponsor a school? With budget cuts to schools and economic constraints on many parents, several groups who have expressed interest in attending find that they are unable to do so, even at our reduced ticket price of $10. Your business or organization could make a difference in keeping this theatrical tradition alive! Typical group sizes range from 20 students to 60 or more. Please contact the Pollard box office for details. 405.282.2800
