The Foundation’s theatre enrichment work fosters the art form by expanding access to inspiring productions and immersive educational experiences. We endeavor to support excellent artistic content that promotes important conversations around timely social issues. Further, we believe that active engagement before and after performances provides additional access points that are welcoming to new and underserved audiences.
Partners such as The 5th Avenue Theatre and Center Theatre Group help us achieve our goals through a rich variety of theatre programming that includes introductions to career pathways, initiatives that attract new audiences, and performances for students with curriculum enrichment and post-show discussions. In addition, we create opportunities to recognize organizations that are innovative in their content selection, audience engagement, and community outreach.
