Pay-What-You-Want Preview

Dear Educators,

Please take a moment to review the guidelines for attending the No Teacher Left Behind preview performances at The Public Theatre.

As you know, this Pay-What-You-Want preview performance was created with the goal of introducing all educators in Maine to the student matinee program at The Public Theatre. We hoped that experiencing a performance would give you a better understanding of the valuable opportunity we are offering your students for only $5 a ticket.

Our goal was to create a group of educational advocates who would bring their students to the theatre, as well as encourage them to participate in the high quality cultural life available in their community.

We thank you for your continued support and invite you to look over our upcoming programming. Scripts are available for all productions, study guides are available for select productions, and a recent bus fund has been added to help accommodate any travel difficulties.

We ask that all educators please follow the following guidelines when attending the pay-what-you-want performance:

  1. You must be a current employee of a school in Maine.
  2. Each educator may bring ONE guest.
  3. You must RSVP with your name, and the name of your school by 5pm on the day of the preview performance.

If you have any questions about our student matinee programming, please call us at 782-2211 or email.

The best way to find out about NTLB previews and our Student Matinees is to sign up for our emails.
