Intrinsic to the Fulton’s mission of providing quality theatre for youth of our region, the School Day program entertains, educates and inspires students from throughout Central Pennsylvania, and has since 1983. The experience of sitting in a national historic landmark, the nation’s oldest continuously operating theatre, and enjoying a live stage production performed by Equity actors is one that no child soon forgets and is of crucial importance in building the cultural and aesthetic development of the individual as well as future audiences for the arts. Post-performance talkbacks are available upon request, and study guides are provided for each production.
Please note: School Day Matinee performances are not on sale to the general public. Tickets must be arranged through the Fulton’s Education department and are not available via the Box Office.

Groups will be faxed or emailed a reservation invoice within two weeks, which must be signed and returned to confirm the reservation. Submit the invoice to your Business Office/Manager to process payment. Payment in full is due by the date printed on your invoice (2-4 weeks prior to the performance).

The credit card will only be processed if the school payment is not received by the due date indicated on the Reservation Invoice. Fulton Theatre accepts credit cards, checks, and cash as forms of payment. Groups may decrease their ticket numbers or cancel their reservation before payment is due; however, once full payment is received, all sales are final. After that time, you may still increase your numbers, subject to availability.
