Student Matinees

Matinee performances are scheduled on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Groups of 12 or more attending a performance have the unique opportunity to request a complimentary Backstage Tour and experience CDT “Behind the Scenes.” Volunteer Docents lead groups through CDT’s 90,000 square foot complex, giving groups an insider’s look at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres not normally available to the general public. Tours last approximately 60 minutes and take place immediately prior to seating for your meal. Post-show Question and Answer sessions are offered to larger groups.

Minimum group size: Groups of 12 or more are entitled to special prices and benefits including backstage tours and onstage acknowledgement prior to the show.

Cost: Ticket price varies by performance - tickets include meal, show, and parking. Complimentary tickets may be available for adult chaperones.

Recommended age range: Older Elementary, Middle School & High School aged students receive the most enrichment, particularly those interesting in music and theatre. Many performances are suitable for children ages 5 and up, but parents should refer to the content statement for each show to make an informed choice as some shows may not be appropriate for all ages.

Sibling policy: For children under the age of 5, parents should use their discretion as to whether or not they will be disruptive to other audience members.
Parent/guardian/educator policy: Recommend 1 adult chaperone per 20 high school students or 1 adult chaperone per 10 students younger than 13.

Sister Act

November 3, 2017 - February 24, 2018

After a successful run that began in 2015, Chanhassen Dinner Theatres is proud to bring back the feel-amazing musical comedy smash, Sister Act! Featuring original music by 8-time Oscar-winner, Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors, Newsies). Sister Act tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her away in the last place anyone would expect – a convent! Set around the Christmas holidays, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she also rediscovers her own in a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship.
