School Matinee Program


About the Program

Fall 2020 Update:
PAC Outreach and Cal Poly Arts’ Poly Arts for Youth program are partnering to redesign the 2020-2021 student matinee season to present virtual options for schools across the county, and beyond. Season offerings will be announced in early October, and content will be added throughout the season. These virtual fields trips will be a combination of performances and interactive workshops, many featuring beloved artists that have joined us for matinees at the PAC in years past. Stay tuned for more information, and to learn how to register your school!

Every year, thousands of K-12 students come from throughout the Central Coast to attend live performances at the Performing Arts Center. The performances are open to all San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County K-12 students and teachers at no admission cost with subsidized transportation. The Outreach Student Matinee Program is free for all schools and students and is made possible by the generous support of the Harold J. Miossi Charitable Trust, along with Foundation for the Performing Arts Center partners listed below.

Registration for each season typically begins in August. To learn more or register your school, please navigate through the tabs for detailed information. We hope to see your school at the PAC!
