Bus Subsidy Application

Thanks to generous support from our donors, Actors Theatre grants money to schools in need to help cover part of their transportation costs associated with attending a student matinee.

Our free preshow classroom workshops, led by Actors Theatre teaching artists, provide a fun and collaborative opportunity for students to engage with the themes, ideas and issues of the Actors Theatre production they are about to see.

Due to the high volume of student matinees, Actors Theatre is not able to offer pre-show workshops to all schools.

Pre-Show Workshop

Booking Policy

Actors prioritizes seeing students from Title One schools and younger students from public schools. Schools that fit this criteria are invited to book pre-show workshops first. If there is room in the schedule, additional invites are sent to older students and non-Title One schools.

Request a Lesson Plan

If we cannot offer your school a pre-show workshop, please email Education Associate Abigail Miskowiec.
