School Matinee Series
Mondavi Center’s School Matinee Series offers an extraordinary opportunity for school groups to experience the magic of live performance first hand. We have designed these matinee performances to complement and enhance K–12 curriculum, giving students entertaining, as well as informative, access to world class multicultural, multidisciplinary artists.
To be kind to the environment, we are no longer mailing printed tickets for school matinees. Each order will still have assigned seats.
To help prepare for a visit to the Mondavi Center at UC Davis, free CueSheet teacher guides are available to download.
Pre-Matinee Classroom Talks
This is a program managed by Friends of Mondavi Center, our donor-based volunteer support organization. Friends schedule school visits to classrooms attending specially selected school matinees to support the instructor’s preparation for students that are attending the performance. Docent Guides for each matinee are researched and written by Friends and distributed to the docents. A Classroom Talk lasts approximately 30 minutes. Every effort is made to satisfy the requests of schools regardless of distance (usually within 90 minutes of UC Davis).
