BRING YOUR STUDENTS TO LONG WHARF!

 


The experience at Long Wharf was so much fun.  I loved being part of the audience with so many other schools.  The theatre is intimate and it makes you feel up close and personal to the actors. – Simone, Hamden High School

Thanks to the support of our generous donors, student tickets for groups of 10 or more are available for all performances at our lowest ticket price of $18 and chaperones attend for FREE (one per ten students).  A one-time $5 group fee will be added per transaction.

SNOW POLICY

In the event that schools are cancelled due to inclement weather or should LWT cancel a performance due to inclement weather, LWT will make it a priority to work with each Student Group to ensure students are able to participate fully in the Student Theatre Series. First, LWT will exchange the tickets to another performance of the same production, subject to availability. If tickets are not available for the same production, LWT will exchange tickets to another performance in the Student Matinee Series, again subject to availability.
