School Time Shows

Each year, the Palace welcomes thousands of students to our historic theatre for free school-time performances of plays and musicals.

Produced by artists from our resident production company, Park Playhouse, these school-time presentations are selected with New York State curriculum standards in mind and are drawn from genres including history, literature, mathematics and science. Our teaching artists develop Activity & Study Guides and share them with participating schools ahead of your visit to enhance the experience for your students.

Attendance by schools is free of charge. For information or to make a reservation, contact Ashley Simone Kirchner, Arts & Education Coordinator, at (518) 465-3335 x113 or  

Please note, even if your school is not participating, you can still be part of the action. These productions are also made available to the general public with low cost tickets for adults & free seating for kids as part of our Palace Family Series. Visit the Events section of our website to book tickets today!
