Northrop Youth Program

Each season, Northrop welcomes more than 10,000 K-12 students to experience high-quality performing arts with student matinees. With low-cost tickets and subsidized busing, Northrop engages students in meaningful experiences, discussions and exploration through live performances. In collaboration with University of Minnesota faculty, Northrop aligns its matinee programming with MN Education standards and provides resources to enhance student learning before, during, and after the performances.
