The Student Theater Education Program with Actors Theatre of Indiana and Broadway Indianapolis have launched a new partnership to offer a taste of Broadway along with education for students from middle schools to colleges throughout central Indiana.
The partnership was recently kicked off at the Broadway Indianapolis production of “School of Rock” at Clowes Memorial Hall on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis. Participating students can purchase tickets at 50 percent off on select Wednesday night performances. After the show, they remain for a Q&A session with cast members and possible backstage tours.
There also will be a master class opportunity, taught by members of a touring show performing at the Studio Theater in Carmel.
“One of our foundational goals at ATI is to educate our youth about Broadway and the theater,” stated Don Farrell, co-founder of Actors Theatre of Indiana. “We are thrilled to be part of this venture with Broadway Indianapolis to give our future generation of leaders an appreciation of theater and the public arts.”
Although not every performance will be included in the partnership, the next opportunity will be during the performance of “The King and I” March 5 to 10 at Clowes Memorial Hall.
