Student Matinees

In 1986 Derby Dinner began a program that combined theatre and education. The children’s theatre shows are performed weekdays for school groups and on Saturday for the public. All school shows have accompanying lesson plans to help teachers incorporate the play into the curriculum. No food or drink are served at student matinee performances.

Theatre Performances: 812-288-8281

Goals/Mission statement of organization: Our goal is to develop and nurture the creativity and appreciation of theatre within students by exposing them to a live musical theatre performance.

Teachers receive study guides/lesson plans that correlate to Common Core State Standards,  Kentucky Academic Standards,  and Indiana Academic Standards.  Plans include pre and post production activities that aid in extending the experience beyond the doors of the theatre.

ATTENTION TEACHERS! Join our Email Club to receive lesson plans via e-mail and info on special discounts and upcoming programming. Forward your request to amyers@derbydinner.com.
