School-Time Matinee Series

In response to guidelines from the Mississippi Department of Health and the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention regarding Covid-19, all events at the Bologna Performing Arts Center through April 30, 2020 will be rescheduled or canceled – effective immediately. If you have tickets for an upcoming event, you will receive information about your choices. Thank you for your understanding.


The School-Time Matinee Series is an arts education initiative at the Bologna Performing Arts Center intended for school children and educators. STMS performances are scheduled for the spring and fall semester of each academic year, and usually take place at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. on weekday mornings. Study guides are available for download in the section below that accompany the performances.


Bringing students to the theatre teachers them so much more than simply the narrative playing out on the stage. Students who experience live theatre participate in experiential learning that elevates the subject matter and offers a unique take on more traditional instruction methods. Plus, you’re not just teaching your students about the content of the performance. You’re teaching them about theatre procedure—the how, not just the what—and part of that lesson includes how to be a good audience member. Before attending our STMS performances, please take a moment and review the 2019-2020 Theater Etiquette Handout with your students.


Tickets for the 2020-2021 School-Time Matinee Series will go on sale in August of 2020!
