School Groups

A school trip to Lunchbox is perfect for enlivening education through theatre. Our one-act format and shorter length plays are perfect for kids who aren’t used to sitting through long productions, and our 12:00 PM performance time conveniently fits into the school day. Talk backs with the cast and crew are also available at no additional charge.
