Field Trips of The Maryland Theatre

In keeping with the mission of The Maryland Theatre, to support our community at large, field trips groups are welcome to schedule a complimentary tour of the facility. Groups must schedule a tour minimum of 30 days before the desired date, and all tours must occur during traditional business hours. The performance and event schedule does take precedent in terms of availability; therefore, we encourage groups to have a few dates in mind!

Tours are approximately 30-60 minute in length, with opportunity for a Q&A session tailored to curriculum. Depending on the number of students, smaller groups may need to be assigned for tour purposes. Groups can decide to eat lunch at The Maryland Theatre and for this, a small cleaning fee will be assessed.
