As part of our continued commitment to engage our communities and diversify our audiences, the Center has offered a program called Family Nights at the Center, since 2010.
This outreach program engages at-risk families in targeted neighborhoods to attend theatre together at least twice throughout the Broadway Season. These experiences include orchestra level seating for the show, a post-performance reception and an opportunity to meet the cast & crew of the show.
How to Participate in the Program
Through this program, we select a community-based organization that assists us in inviting families from their specific neighborhoods to participate. Some of our past participants include:
The 2018 select community based organization was:
COA Youth & Family Centers
Over 100 guests of families from this organization will be joining us this season for both The Sound of Music and Rodger’s & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
