School Matinees


School Matinee Performances allow students, teachers and parents the opportunity to attend professional performing arts events at the Performing Arts Center during the school day. Adapted for school children of all ages, school matinees are held throughout the school year and are generally 50-60 minutes in length.

Community Sponsored


The PAC is thrilled to announce that the 2018-2019 School Matinee Performance Season is community-sponsored. For a third year, the PAC will offer free admission for SLO County students to attend school matinees presented by PAC Outreach. The Foundation for the Performing Arts Center, its members, and the following local granting agencies have made this possible: California Arts Council, George Hoag Family Foundation, The Community Foundation SLO County, Robert H. Janssen Foundation, Lindamood-Bell, Justin Vineyards & Winery, Trust Automation, Bank of the Sierra, Bert and Candace Forbes and Pacific Gas and Electric. Special recognition goes to the Harold J. Miossi Charitable Trust, as the three-year 2015-18 Title Sponsor. With their generous gift, four additional shows have been added to the School Matinee program.
