Dorset Theatre Festival Gives Back
From a Giving Back patron…
“When my son was a volunteer firefighter and EMT while he was in college locally, I was so grateful for the chance to go to Dorset with him; I would not have been able to afford it while paying for college tuition if you had not had that program. He and I started going to children’s theater when he was 4 years old, and he did theater tech from 5th grade through college, so this is something that has been a special bond for us for 22 years.”
DORSET THEATRE FESTIVAL IS DEDICATED TO NURTURING BOTH ARTISTS AND AUDIENCES THROUGH PRODUCTIONS THAT REFLECT THE REGION IT SERVES: DIVERSE, BRILLIANT, RAW, AND ALIVE.
Since 2010, our Giving Back partners have helped expand the reach of our productions and educational initiatives by providing reduced-cost tickets to select groups. These efforts reach a new generation of theatre audiences by giving all members of our community the chance to see world-class theatre.
Our Giving Back Program provides Pay-What-You-Like tickets to those who serve our community each day (and their families!), including:
• EMS Workers
• Veteran and active-duty military
• Special Needs Community
• Student graduates of the Refuse to Use Program
• Habitat For Humanity Families and Volunteers
• Living Proof Mentors and Mentees
BLUE STAR THEATRE INITIATIVE SALUTES MILITARY FAMILIES
Dorset Theatre Festival is proud to support military families through our membership with the BLUE STAR THEATRE initiative. This program allows us to offer Pay-What-You-Can tickets to all those have or are serving in our military, as well as their families.
Blue Star Theatres is a program of Blue Star Families and Theatre Communications Group.
