Group Reservations Info & Policy

Group Reservations

Bring your group to a StoryBook Theater show and experience the magic of live theater! StoryBook Theater offers weekday matinees for groups of 10 or more. Group tickets are only $9 for school matinee tickets to our StoryBook Theater season. Please note: There are no School Matinee shows scheduled for the 2020-21 season at this time. 

StoryBook Theater productions are 55-minute musical fairytale adaptations, written especially for young people ages 3-10, but fun for grown-ups too. Every story includes audience participation, and conveys a positive life lesson for children. StoryBook shows are never scary and always have a happy ending.

StoryBook Theater performs at Renton’s Carco Theatre, Kirkland Performance Center, Shoreline Conference Center, Everett PUD Auditorium.

Are your students ready for longer performances of exciting plays and musicals? They can attend Studio East’s Mainstage School Matinee shows, performed by our student casts, ages 7-19. Tickets are $10/person for groups of 10 or more. All shows are performed at Studio East in Kirkland. Please note: there are no Studio East School Matinee shows scheduled at this time.

School Show Reservation Policies

Seating Total Policies

Please estimate carefully how many seats your group will need; ensure you are accounting for all students, all educators, and all chaperones.  Contact us if you need to add people to your reservation, and we will let you know if more seats are available. You may lower the number of seats at any time before you pay for your group. Once payment is made, no refunds are given for empty seats, including missing people on the day of the show.

Please notify us if your group has wheelchairs, walkers, hearing or vision needs. ASL interpreted performances are available on specific weekends at the Kirkland Performance Center, but not during school matinees.

Payment Policies

Payment is due in full on the contract payment due date. When you make your reservation, ask about Partial Scholarships for public schools that have at least 40% of their students enrolled in the Federal Free & Reduced Lunch Program.

Additional Tickets Policy

Additional tickets may be available after your group has paid for their reservation. They will be at the $15.00 per ticket general admission price, and need to be purchased in advance by phone. Additional seats are not guaranteed to be available, and they may not be seated with your group.

Behavioral Expectations At All Theaters

Food, drink and chewing gum are not allowed in the theater or lobby. All book bags, backpacks and toys should be left at school or on the bus. Photography or video recording is NOT permitted during the shows. Cell phones or any other electronic devices should be off during the performance, as they can interfere with the sound equipment and distract others. We recommend using the restrooms in the lobby before your group is seated for the show.
