Homeschoolers are invited to attend professional productions at a group rate for as little as $5 a ticket. Please note that some plays are $6.

In the past, homeschool families have purchased more than 700 tickets as a group.

To ensure good seats, a tentative order was placed at the beginning of May.  The more homeschoolers grouped under this order, the easier it is for Viterbo staff and ushers.  If your group has ordered a smaller number of tickets on your own in the past, please consider purchasing through this group for best seats and best prices.

PLEASE pass this information to other families that would enjoy the shows.

Please contact Jenny Fisher about your reservation questions!


** The date of The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales has been changed to Wednesday, January 27th.  Performance times remain the same.
Crow and Weasel will be performed at the Weber Center for the Performing Arts.
** The 9:30 am performance of The Peking Acrobats® is full. There are seats in the 12:30 pm performance.

Parking Information, Theatre Etiquette, and Study Guides


Email by Monday, September 14th to place your order.

All orders must be submitted by email.  Each family should submit its own order.

In your email, please include the following:

Your name
Your phone number
The title, time preference, and # of tickets you would like for each performance

Please contact Jenny Fisher about your reservation questions!


All payment is due in full from each family on Monday, September 14th. All checks will be held until September 14th.


Orders are filled by the date your email is received in the inbox.

The earlier you submit your order, the more likely you are to receive seats for the performances you desire.

You get to pick and choose your shows, show times, and number of tickets.

The deadline to order tickets with the initial group is September 14th.

You can almost always purchase additional tickets up to the day before a show, but might not be seated with the group or receive the discounted rate.

All tickets cost the same regardless of the age of the attendee.

Everyone needs a ticket, even babies.

You don’t need to specify the number of kids/adults, just the total number coming from your group.

Families who do not order and submit payment by September 14th to Jenny Fisher and still wish to attend a performance(s) may still place an order with Jenny.

Seats ordered after the deadline aren’t guaranteed to be with the rest of the group, and the discounted price does not apply unless your order is for ten or more tickets per performance.

All sales are final.

No refunds will be issued.

Please contact Jenny Fisher about your reservation questions at


Please arrive approximately 20 minutes before the performance time to allow for parking and use of the bathroom.

Homeschool families must find street parking, as Viterbo lots require permits. (Please see attached map).

The bus lane is only for schools who arrive in buses.

No unattended children are allowed in the lobby area or the theatre before, during, and after a show.

Upon arrival, enter the Fine Arts Center through the west lobby doors near the bus lane. Please check in at the table in the main lobby—if no one is at the table, wait until someone arrives to check you in and escort you to your seats.

Use of cell phones for talking, texting, or photo or video recording is not permitted during a performance.

We are unable to guarantee seating next to another desired group due to limited seating and the size of each group.

If a baby or young child is disruptive, we ask that a parent/guardian remove the child from the theatre until he/she has calmed down.

If you arrive with a stroller or car seat, you will be able to keep these just outside the theatre doors as fire codes state they cannot be placed on the floor in the seating rows.

If you have questions about the above policies, please contact:
