Student Matinee OfferingsThis season, Lookingglass offers Metamorphoses as a part of our Student Matinee Season. Weâ€™re particularly excited to offer student matinee performances at a deeply discounted of $10 per ticket so that Chicago-area students have the opportunity to experience the magic of live theatre.
Fourteen years ago Lookingglass debuted Metamorphoses, a play of such grace and power that the memory of it still lingers in the minds of audiences today. In the simple beauty of a rippling pool of water, Ensemble Member Mary Zimmerman conjures the force of Ovidâ€™s myths into gorgeous imagery and breathtaking storytelling. This critically-acclaimed, record-breaking Chicago engagement led to an award-winning Broadway production and catapulted Lookingglass onto the national stage. Donâ€™t miss your chance to experience the magic and enchantment of this very special anniversary production, ten years after its Tony Award-winning Broadway run.
In addition to discounted tickets for school groups, we will provide teachers and administrators with a study guide to orient students to the show ahead of the performance. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to participate in a Question-and-Answer session with the cast after the show. We also offer in-school workshops for students (either before or after the matinee field trip), lead by our teaching artists. If you are interested in reserving tickets for a matinee performance, please contact Lizzie Perkins, Director of Education and Community Programs, at 773.477.9257 x104.
