Help Us Bring Youth to the Theatre

At Arts Umbrella, we witness something magical happen when students have the opportunity to experience youth performing for youth. Inspired by what they see on stage, students grow their enthusiasm for self-expression in new artistic forms.

These days, with many schools suffering from budget cuts, young people face financial barriers to access live theatre performances.

In 2019, over 2,500 students experienced a school matinee performance at the Expressions Theatre Festival—free of charge or at a highly subsidized rate. This season, we would like to give the experience of live theatre to even more young people.
