Student Matinee

IN SCHOOL PROGRAMS & STUDENT MATINEES represent an opportunity for HFI to enhance learning in Maryland schools by linking required state curriculum to a Hippodrome Theatre show. HFI staff work directly with teachers with in-school instruction and then students, who might otherwise not have the chance, come to the Hippodrome Theatre for a National Touring Broadway show.

The HFI Board of Trustees is committed to using our touring shows as a tool to assist with learning—and local teachers are thrilled with the results. Past collaborations with local schools included adding matinees of Phantom of the Opera, Cinderella, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Hairspray, Little Women, Dreamgirls, Twelve Angry Men, West Side Story and more. The foundation is always tying curriculum to themes and historical elements of the show. HFI staff work with local school systems to plan and maximize understanding and appreciation of existing state curriculum.
