One of our greatest areas of interest at The Shaw is our ever expanding educational programs. With deep cuts to government arts funding, it is becoming increasingly challenging for school and youth groups to participate in theatrical experiences without monetary subsidization – it’s far too expensive. A lot of the time, we are the kids’ first – and sometimes only – exposure to theatre. Without your help, these students might not have access to the arts.
Gifts in support of our Special Appeal for Student Engagement in the Arts have helped thousands of young people experience live theatre and participate in a variety of educational experiences at the Shaw Festival.
How can you help? Make a gift to support student engagement in the arts at The Shaw. Your donation will help to expand our educational programs, enabling us to offer more affordable ticket prices for students and enhanced experiences like backstage tours, post-show chats with the actors, and intergenerational workshops for families of all ages. You can help expose today’s youth to life changing theatrical experiences.
- $25 will pay for one youth show ticket
- $50 will provide one student with their show ticket and bus transportation
- $100 will pay for an entire class to participate in a backstage tour
- $200 will provide one classroom with two actor-facilitated workshops
Donate now to give a deserving student the gift of theatre and make educational opportunities more accessible to future generations of theatre patrons and professionals. You will truly make a difference to our educational programming, allowing us to inspire, empower and engage more young people through the arts.
