CTC TiCkeT ACCess ProgrAm
More than 249,000 patrons joined us this past season to see a CTC production. Over 30%of those audience members were able to attend a show at CTC thanks to our ticket accessprograms - which are supported by friends like you! Our ticket access programs givefamilies who wouldn’t otherwise be able to join us due to nancial barriers the opportunityto experience the excitement of live theater. For many of those families, this was their rstopportunity to see a theater production.
sTudenT mATinee ProgrAm
This past season our School Matinee Program welcomed more than 62,000 students from409 schools to CTC. Tickets to our school matinees were deeply discounted to ensure themaximum number of schools could attend. Schools serving predominantly low-incomechildren were eligible for deeper school matinee ticket subsidies from CTC. This program,partly funded by Target, allowed us to bring in schools that were usually unable to attendCTC due to nancial restraints. Thanks to this program, more than 36,000 studentsreceived tickets for as little as $1 and many schools were granted nancial assistance forbus transportation.
