Student Matinee Performances

Students and teachers from public, private, and charter schools throughout southern Nevada are invited to attend matinee performances at The Smith Center. Throughout the school year, The Smith Center presents performances by local, regional, national, and international artists to inspire and engage students. Matinee performances represent a variety of arts disciplines and are specifically designed for young audiences of all ages. Supporting curriculum related materials are sent to participating teachers to prepare students for the performances.

Each year, tens of thousands of students have the opportunity to experience unforgettable arts experiences.

Through these performances, we are cultivating the next generation’s audience. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, participating schools are offered free admission to these performances.

Information about the student matinee performances is sent out to all CCSD schools through the School-Community Partnership Office at the beginning of each school year along with specific instructions for submitting a request to attend. Requests from schools are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis as seats are available.

Private, charter, and homeschool groups interested in attending student matinees may submit inquiries via email to
