School Matinees

Bring ‘em in for a real class act! Nobody skips school when Blue Man Group’s on the schedule. It’s art, music and comedy education at its least expected and most amazing. School Matinees are weekday performances specially added to better fit your field trip timetable. We also welcome bands and orchestras, science, theatre and music clubs… you name it. Come get “schooled” in the spectacular!

Where it all began. And still does.

The 287-seat Astor Place Theatre is not only a historic city landmark, it’s where Blue Man Group gave its first full performances back in ‘91. It’s a fantastically intimate venue, ideal for catching action close-up and the perfect place to feel every bold, beautiful beat of your Blue Man Group experience.

Program Notes & Info

Weekday School Matinees are our special “Backstage On the Stage” performances. They feature a 30-minute educational and interactive lesson on the backstage elements that work together to create what you see during a performance. Students would get an inside look at how technology, music, and innovation collide to create a spectacular, multi-sensory, rock-your-world show. This is immediately followed by a 1-hour Blue Man Group performance.

Minimum group size for group pricing is 10 people. Student and youth groups are seated in the best available section at $59 per ticket. Contact a Sales Group Associate for details.
