Family Programs

Family Matinees

The Joyce invites young audiences (ages 5 to 15) and their grown-ups to experience renowned companies together and to enjoy a special opportunity to meet the artists following the performances. Kids' tickets are only $10. All children must be accompanied by an adult!

Joyce Juniors

Kids (ages 5-15) attending at least four family matinees automatically become Joyce Junior members and save 40% on the price of their tickets—that’s $10 reduced to only $6. Joyce Juniors receive a special "welcome packet" filled with fun activities and treats each time they attend a family matinee performance!
