The TYE Center sponsors a fall touring show, a spring touring show, school matinee performances of UVU main season shows, and special productions. We also offer bus grants, study guides, and sensory-friendly performances.

Touring shows bring live theatre to schools in Utah Valley and beyond. Touring show performances begin at 1:00pm, and are $100 to bring the play to the school’s performing space.

To schedule a touring show that brings live theatre to your school, contact Marta Myers at 801-863-KIDS (5437) or

Teaching Stage study guides are provided, in advance, to help teachers prepare their students for the play.

School matinees of theatre department productions are held in the Noorda Center for the Performing Arts on the main campus of Utah Valley University in Orem. Tickets are $3 a seat for all students, teachers, and chaperones attending the performance. School matinees begin at 10:00am, with the option of free post-show discussions with the cast and production team, upon request.
