Local community groups and charities invited to apply for Actors Theatre community grant tickets

Actors Theatre of Louisville is delighted to announce the return of their successful Community Ticket Grant program for the 2018-2019 Season, sponsored in part by Brown-Forman and Hogan Lovells. This city-wide initiative extends the opportunity to experience Actors Theatre’s vibrant programming to any members of Louisville and Southern Indiana’s community groups and 501(c)(3) charities, who for various reasons, may not have the resources to attend a performance on their own.

In its third season, the Community Ticket Grant program served 60area charities, which granted the opportunity for a theatrical experience to 1,400 local residents.

“We are thrilled to provide this opportunity once again for our Louisville and Southern Indiana community to enjoy our upcoming season” said Carrie Syberg, Director of Community Partnerships. “We’re building on the positive response from the past few years and continuously seeking ways to anticipate and remove barriers to artistic programing, especially for our local neighbors. We’ll keep striving to welcome an audience that is reflective of our dynamic and diverse community.”

Qualifying community groups and 501(c)(3) charities serving individuals in the greater Louisville and Southern Indiana area are welcome to apply to receive complimentary tickets to a performance of Actors Theatre’s 2018-2019 Season Brown-Forman Series, holiday shows, and 43rd Humana Festival of New American Plays productions. Each group may apply for up to three productions a year with ticket quantities ranging from a minimum of 10 tickets up to a maximum of 75 tickets.

The selected groups will be awarded tickets to one of their three production choices for the 201-2019 Season. Groups will work with the Actors Theatre Marketing Department and Box Office to coordinate attendance details and seating selection for their group members.

As part of their grant applications, groups may request tickets to the following productions in Actors Theatre’s 2018-2019 season:

Fifth Third Bank’s Dracula
