ABOUT Snow White

by Greg Banks
Recommended for ages 6+

This is not your usual “Once Upon a Time.” Classic? No. Wild? Yes! To start with, it’s a two-person play. Do the math. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves? Two fabulous, whip-smart, super-fast actors play Snow White, the huntsman, the prince, and all seven dwarves! And it’s funny. Really, really funny. So expect the unexpected in this fabulous fairy tale with a (spoiler alert) you-won’t-see-it-coming twist.

ABOUT Selena Maria Sings

By Miriam Gonzales
Music by Daniel French
Recommended for ages 9+

Named after Selena Quintanilla, queen of the Tejano music scene, Selena Maria has so much to live up to. Like her namesake, Selena Maria’s passion is music—but her heart belongs to indie sounds and songwriting. Her mom, a Selena superfan, wants her to be all the things her beloved icon stood for (on and off the stage), but Selena Maria struggles to be herself while she’s trying to be someone else. With the help of her prima Cissy and a few others along the way, Selena Maria begins to find her own voice. Selena Maria Sings tells a story of music, family, immense love, and the strength it takes to be yourself.

PARENTS/CHAPERONES SEATED WITH THE GROUP:  

If you want the parents to be guaranteed a seat with your group, you must include the parents in your adult ticket request at the time of your group reservation.

Teacher/organizer must collect the $15 per ticket from the parent(s) and payment must be included in your final payment to the box office.  We recommend giving parents a deadline (3 weeks before your show date) to turn in their money to the school so you are able to have a final count. If you select this option, your parents do not need to contact the Theatre.

DUE TO COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS, NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR/BOX OFFICE TO PARENTS

All tickets must be purchased and arranged in advance if parents are allowed to sit with their child(ren) if tickets are arranged with initial order. Teachers are responsible to notify parents that tickets will not be available to purchase for fieldtrip performances.

PRE & POST-PERFORMANCE: 

Immediately after the performance (most school programs are held from Oct-May), a 10-minute talkback and Q&A is held by the cast that meets important TEKS standards and compliments our study guide for each show.  Call the box office 210.227.2751 for assistance with your group purchase. Ask about how your classroom can take a backstage tour!

PARKING:

After unloading, buses and commercial vehicles are not permitted to stay parked alongside the curb of Alamo Street in front of the Theatre during the show. Free parking for buses is available nearby at the Alamodome, Lot A. For information regarding the Alamodome bus parking, call (210) 207-3680 or visit http://www.alamodome.com/plan-your-visit/disabled-services. The Alamodome allows school buses to park in its Disabled Parking Lot (Lot A), unless there is a large event going on that requires the parking lot. If the Alamodome lot is unavailable, alternate bus parking can be found on Camaron Street between Martin Street and Travis Street. It is on-the-street parking reserved for buses (the closest address is 450 Camaron Street). There is signage along the street that says “Reserved for Tour Buses”, but the City of San Antonio has confirmed that this area is available for school buses as well, and is free of charge. There are also 1 or 2 bus parking spots along Nueva Street, which is the street at the end of our building.

Parents should plan to arrive early to park at nearby parking lots (Rates vary from $5-$15). The Theatre does not have a dedicated parking lot. A daytime parking map for parents can be found in our Parking and Directions page.

ARRIVAL:

Doors will open 30 minutes prior to show time for weekday performances. Please plan to arrive at the time the doors open to avoid any delays or late seating. Teacher/organizer must check in the box office as the group/classes are getting lined up by Magik Theatre Staff.  The teacher/organizer will pass out tickets to the parents/teachers that are included in her group count.  Parents who wish to purchase or have purchased tickets in advance should plan to arrive early and check in at the box office.  Please note, if you are not part of the reservation made by the teacher/organizer, you will not be seating with the group.

LUNCHES:

If you plan to eat lunch after the show, you may leave your lunches in our 2nd lobby against the wall during the show. The Yanaguana Garden playground and park is located right next to the Theatre and is a great place to enjoy a picnic lunch before or after the show.
