Student Matinees present music, dance and theatre in combination with arts-integrated lesson plans and professional development for educators. With a focus on Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District and its families, we provide programming which is responsive to the interests and curriculum goals of our local schools.
Transportation scholarships are available to ensure that students in the district have access to a live performing arts experience. Contact us at 310.434.3560 for more information about how to arrange your school’s trip to The Broad Stage!

The Teacher/Artist Collaborative pairs classroom teachers and artists from The Broad Stage to co-create Study Guides and deliver Professional Development Workshops to K-12 educators.
Student Matinees are supported with resources for educators, including arts-integrated Study Guides developed by our Teacher/Artist Collaborative, with grade-appropriate lessons, concepts and vocabulary. This comprehensive curriculum includes pre- and post-show lesson plans, student worksheets, articles and online media content and is available for download from our Study Guide Library.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS
Educators participate in Professional Development Workshops to prepare for each Student Matinee offered during The Broad Stage season. Teachers explore arts-integrated lesson plans and hone new techniques to replicate in their classrooms. Anchored in California State Standards, workshops are facilitated by members of the Teacher/Artist Collaborative.
