Performing Arts Days

Performing Arts Day is an excellent way for students to visit our program and experience life as a wildcat in a low pressure environment. PAD is a class field trip experience where students pick from a list of workshops with UNH Theatre & Dance Faculty and Students. Students will also get a chance to tour the university and eat in our award-winning dining halls.
This is a great experience for drama clubs, theatre classes, school acting groups, and more... Teachers and Leaders can sign up to attend Performing Arts Day by reaching out to Jamie Clavet (

Box Office Procedure for School Groups

No printed tickets will be given to school groups who reserve seats. Reservation Contracts and Reservation Confirmations will be used. Seating is reserved first come-first served and is guaranteed, as seats allow, with payment, purchase order, or reservation contract. Because of fire codes and for safety of patrons, anyone attending (including teachers, bus drivers, chaperones, etc.) will need to reserve a seat. Disability parking, access, and wheelchair seating are available. When ordering seats, please let us know your needs so that our ushers can be on hand to assist with entry into accessible doorways, hallways, and elevator. Schools will be seated, as groups, toward the front of the theatre in the order of their arrival. The Theatre Lobby Box Office will be open the morning of the event from 9:00-10:30am to assist those with fully executed Reservation Contracts who still need to pay or submit Purchase Orders. Since all school matinee seats are reserved in advance, no tickets will be sold at the door the morning of the event.
