Keeping school performances accessible and affordable

Unforgettable performances by world-class artists fill the Ordway’s school matinee season! With $4 tickets and bus reimbursement for all schools, we continue to be one of the most affordable field trip venues in the region.

From the moment we were greeted at the doorway of the bus to the moment we were seated in the theater, everyone was very friendly. The performance was spectacular!
