Student & Teachers FAQ

Ticket prices will vary based on the production; some shows do offer student rates (for student groups and/or individual students). Please check individual show listings for details.

Complimentary tickets are very rare in commercial theatre. As a general rule, teacher/chaperone comps are not available. However, the comp policy may vary on a show by show basis. Please check individual show listings for details.

Every show listing includes a content advisory and age recommendation. In addition, our Get To Know The Show Teacher’s Guide offers key points of relevance (including curriculum connections, themes and motifs, show synopsis, suggested guiding/reflection questions and more) to help you select the best show for your student audience. You will find a link to the Teacher’s Guide on the show listing page (see Shows) as well as in the Resources library.

While a “student” can be defined in many ways, our student offers and programmes are designed for the benefit of school groups affiliated with a school board and/or educational institute. A “group” is defined as a ticket order for a singular performance, meeting at least the minimum group ticket quantity required by a production.

Our team of Audience Service Representatives can book your student group tickets, by phone or in person.

Please contact our Education Manager at audienceservices@mirvish.com.
