CONNECTING THE CLASSROOM TO THE STAGE
MCC’S STUDENT MATINEE PROGRAM
It has been a long time coming and MCC cannot wait to welcome students and school groups back to our theater home in Hell’s Kitchen. This season we have a wonderful line up of dynamic productions that will spark conversations which can be continued in the classroom. Whether touching on social topics or stories that are the core of our collective humanity, coming to see a show at MCC is a great compliment to your curriculum and arts education experience.
MCC is making every effort to make our space a welcoming and safe one for our audiences. As we continue to navigate COVID-19, MCC, in accordance with the CDC, New York State and New York City mandates, has established the protocols for our audience members. Please read through our COVID PROTOCOLS at the bottom of the page.

What should you know about STUDENT MATINEES this season?
- Student groups have the flexibility to attend any matinee or evening show that fits their schedule.
- Middle school, high school and college groups of any size qualify for our student pricing of $25 per ticket.
- Our Education department provides a SHOW GUIDE for each production to prepare students for their visit. Each guide includes insight into the show, activities and suggested prompts to jump start the discussion before and after the show.
- Select matinee performances are followed by a post-show discussion facilitated by our education team.
We are proud to offer our Subsidized Student Ticket Program for schools that would otherwise not be able to attend one of our productions. Fill out the online request form below.

UPDATED COVID POLICY
Please note: Effective DECEMBER 7, 2022, masks will be optional (but encouraged) for audience members. To accommodate those who are uncomfortable in an unmasked environment, masks will be REQUIRED at all Tuesday evening, Saturday matinee, and Sunday matinee performances. All MCC employees and audience services staff will continue to wear masks at all performances.
Proof of vaccination will no longer be required of audience members and visitors.
In our continuing efforts to create as safe an environment as possible, we continually update our COVID-19 policy with guidance from the CDC and NYS Department of Health.
Your health and safety is important to us! We are committed to making our space as safe as possible for our community – our staff, artists, production crews, students, and audience members. We’re asking for your help.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
If you are not feeling well, have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the last 14 days, or have been instructed to self-quarantine within the last 10 days we ask that you stay home. We will be happy to exchange your ticket(s) to another performance date within the run free of charge, credit the ticket amount to your account for a future ticket purchase, or process a full refund. You may also donate the cost of your ticket back to the theater. Simply call our box office at 646-506-9393 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT WE’RE DOING
We have expanded our safety initiatives by installing a Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI) technology system, upgrading our HVAC system with MERV 14 & MERV 15 filters, placing standing HEPA filters throughout the building, as well doubling the facility deep cleaning schedule, and going contactless with digital ticket scanning and digital playbills, among other efforts.
