Educators: Ignite your students' imaginations at our School Matinees!

We invite you to bring your school group to PAPAYA at the Bride for a field trip they'll never forget.  PAPAYA selects shows of the highest artistic caliber from around the world to open students’ eyes, ignite their imaginations, generate conversation, and spark the creative process.

"That was the best trip I have  ever taken students on!"  - Jennifer McNally Lynch, Freire Charter School


PAPAYA enlivens the performance experience in our PAPAYA Lab after the show! This engaging artistic playground and learning environment provides hands-on activities, fosters exploration, and allows students to create their own response to the show.

Under the direction of educator and performance-maker Sebastienne Mundheim, this innovative program invites respected Philadelphia-based artists to collaborate with our international companies to create immersive hands-on audience experiences specifically tailored to their post-performance time at the Bride.


Discover the PAPAYA Experience:
  • - Interactive student participation in the PAPAYA Lab
  • - Curriculum support materials provided
  • - Links to statewide academic standards posted on our website
  • - Diverse international artists
"WE HAD THE BEST TIME! Kids came up to me after the show thanking me for the trip!"      - Amanda Groen, Bala Cynwyd Middle School
